Silver Screen Sirens

Top Picks… Bangkok’s VIP Cinemas
When we go to the movies, we expect the red carpet treatment! And with so many films available to watch at home, it’s no longer enough for cinemas to offer a sticky seat, stale popcorn and freezer-blast AC. With this in mind, Bangkok is putting the see-and-be-seen into screen, with cool pampering extras aplenty…

Paragon Cineplex’s candle-lit ‘Enigma’ lounge boasts a guest-spoiling experience with massage chairs and full bar. Tickets include a meal and complimentary drink (wine, cocktail or soda), served by a butler during screenings. Full adjustable sofa-bed seats mean you can recline in style.

Ravishing red Quartier Cine-Art at Emquarter offers various levels of comfort and mod cons – with blankets and reclining chairs up for grabs – but opt for indulgent top-tier ‘Aeon’, with laid-back day-beds and food from dreamy US providore Dean & Deluca.

You’ll think you’ve boarded a biz-class flight at brand-new Emprivé Cineclub at Emporium, where two classes of generous leather seats with cushions guarantee comfort. Bag First-Class passage to enjoy the exclusive Director’s Lounge bar pre-screening, with popcorn and hot and cold tapas treats. The reclining seats and high-tech production deserve an Oscar.

Cosy for couples, Embassy Diplomat Screens features cocoon-like adjustable seating in padded pairs, with a butler and free snacks at your service. Before the flick, relax in the lounge, with books, WiFi, and sweet and savoury bites. Soundproofed bar Heineken Room lets you sink a cold one mid-screening.
