One of the best ways to spend an afternoon in Bangkok is in one of its many movie theaters. Although exploring the city’s shrines, temples, and more should certainly be on the itinerary, sometimes visitors need an hour or two away from the hectic city (and in air conditioning). Here are the seven best cinemas in Bangkok where you can catch a movie.
Movie theaters do not get much more luxurious than Quartier CineArt. In addition to the latest films being shown, the four theaters themselves have screens larger than life, making movie-goers feel as though they are in the film. The theaters continue to get more deluxe, with ones equipped with plush recliners and pillows and, of course, IMAX® movie theaters. If that was not enough to convince visitors that this theater is on top of its game in terms of technology, there is even a hologram employee working out front.
SF Cinema City
The first thing that hits movie-goers visiting the movie theater in MBK is the overwhelming smell of fresh popcorn: nothing is seemingly better or more movie-esque than that. Ample showtimes for all the latest hits makes it easy for visitors to come and go as they please. There is a huge concession stand; however, there are also numerous restaurants just outside the theater, with everything from Vietnamese cuisine to KFC. What makes SF Cinema City unique is that there are so many other fun attractions all located on the same floor, including SF Strike Bowl, Hero City Games Center, Escape Room, and more. Everything sits on the 7th floor.
