School’s out, which can only mean two things . . . complete exhaustion for mommy and lots and lots of fun for Logan! During Logan’s first week of summer break, we’ve done the following: Siam Ocean World, Kidzoona, Benjasiri Park, Chamchurri Square, Play Time, Fourth of July parties, swim play dates, jello jiggler-making, ahh and it’s making my brain hurt trying to remember everything, but trust me, it was A LOT. And on Friday, when I was getting a little desperate for new ideas and needed a little break myself, we tried out the movies. That’s right – our first mother-son movie date. Where? At the Happiness Theater. Yeah, you heard that right, the Happiness Theater.
And file this as reason number 1,583 that I love Bangkok: It has a movie theater designed specifically for families, and that theater – which I’m sure you’ve guessed by now – is called the Happiness Theater. Located at Central World, the Happiness Theater plays only child-friendly films (think Disney/Dreamworks and Pixar). It is a smaller theater with sofa seating for families and bean bags up front. When you buy your ticket (700 baht or US$21 for one adult and one child), popcorn and drink is included. What a cool thing. Perfect for your first movie-going experience with your tot or for a family movie outing.
And just how do you find show times? Well, I’m glad you asked:
- Go to SF Cinema’s Homepage
- Click on “Show Times”
- Choose “SF World Cinema” for Central World movie listings
- When the films are listed, the one with an “H” in parentheses next to it indicates the film showing in the Happiness Theater
And as for us, it looks like we’ll be going to see Turbo when it hits theaters. Who doesn’t want to hear the tale of a racing snail? Enjoy!
