Although the page is titled “the Porch”, there is no separate review page for the other class of theaters at Central Beach Pattaya (and other related cinemas). My review will feature the “FIRST CLASS CINEMA”. The airplanes have “economy”, “business” and “first class” – so why shouldn’t the movie theater! We decided to see Fast and Furious 7 as soon...

To watch the Fast & Furious 7 we (a couple) decided to go to "The Porch" which has huge beds where you can really relax while watching the movie. It was our 1st time there so we didn't know what's going on. When we paid for it (1200 THB per couple) the guy showed us a price list with snacks... More

I only used the Porch once to see a film. I treated a local Thai Girl to a treat, You are treated like VIP guests, but there is a premium price approx 700 baht per each. A one off. You watch the movie from your own Circular comfy bed, which is just amazing. It can be a little noisy as... More

Not cheap by Thai standards but you do have huge beds to relax on whilst you watch the movie plus free cocktail and snacks BUT the noise from the bowling alley next door makes for an overall unpkeasant experience. Go to the first class instead .. More expensive but worth it!

The Porch is an expensive (by Thai standards) cinema within the SFX multiplex cinema at Central Festival Pattaya Beach shopping mall. It is an 'open air' cinema serving complementary popcorn, prawn crackers and a cocktail on a choice of round bed sofas or reclining beds. The price is 1,200 Baht per couple. For this premier product we had to contend... More

Nice and relaxing way to watch your favourite cinema releases. We had a round bed type couch that was strange but comfortable. The only down side was that it is a little cold inside and I could hear some one snoring, so perhaps a little to comfortable for some

First of all my experience is from 5th October 2012, (major Pattaya flood night, which was fun) Our movie session was the 8:40pm show. The movie was "stolen" The movie itself was entertaining, so does not affect my review. They told us to come half hour before the movie Started for some reason so we simply had to wait, which...

If you have time and you just want to relax and unwind with a nice movie then head down to The Porch to 'chill-out'.
