    ’150 films from around the world’ that’s a lot of movies to watch. I haven’t been to either theatre as Victory is closer and well kitted out (comfortable and not too crowded). But as major theatres in BKK are often well-done, those two are sure to be the same.

    Would love to see some world class movies, but, alas, I am in Khon Kaen and all we get is Thai soap operas up here.
