Ticket prices range from less than a hundred baht up to several hundred baht (depending on the time of day, the day of the week, the seat, the location of the theatre and the movie being screened). Generally, the price for a new-release film costs 120 baht. For those who want to experience the ultimate comfort, go for 'VIP' cinemas/seats (prices range from 600 to 1,500 baht) for extra leg room, fully-inclined sofa as well as a pillow and a pair of socks!

Seating is assigned by ticket number, which audience members select on a computer screen at the box office. Showtimes of each film can be found in English newspapers like the Bangkok Post or the Nation as well as the cinema’s websites and box offices.

Something You Need to Know

The most important thing to be aware of when you attend the cinema in Thailand is that you will be required to rise for the Royal Anthem in honour of His Majesty King and the Royal family before the movie starts.

Language and Subtitles 

In central Bangkok and touristy cities like Chiang Mai, Pattaya and Phuket, foreign films (such as Hollywood releases) have the original soundtrack (or 'soundtrack') with Thai sub-titles. Major cinemas playing Thai and other Asian films usually provide English subtitles. Check with the cinema first to avoid disappointment.
