MasterCard Cinema is top shelf
Mar 2020 • Couples
Came on a quiet Friday night to watch a movie at the MasterCard Cinema and was impressed with the sound, screen and seats. Only purchased the premium seats (280 THB) but the seats were super comfortable, was able to recline and more than adequate. Had a nice luxury feel without the luxury price. Really can’t fault anything here.

Nice and huge cineplex in centralworld. A few floors and a bit of a walk so if you’re really late, walk briskly. Having said that, advertisements/trailers are 30 minutes, so no need to run

Paid 1,800 Baht online for first class sofa seat so we could fit in our 23 month old daughter. Upon arrival, they wanted us to pay another 450 Baht for our daughter (half price seat) which we refused. New (rip-off) policy. After a lot of arguing, they let us off. Food in first-class lounge was nothing like it looks on the website, and in the movie a lot of sound was seeping in from the next theatre. Only consolation was that there was just one other person watching apart from us, so like a private showing. Given that people are not going out because of the virus, they should be cutting prices and impoving the offering, not the opposite.

Lobby newly renovated but not the cinema itself
Jan 2020 • Couples

The main lobby and reception area of the cinema has been newly renovated. It gave me a very modern and sophisticated feel.

I watched a movie in cinema number 9 and the cinema was still the same as before. The interior was run down and the seats were old.

huge cinema with comfortable seats
Oct 2019
We went for the mx4D of Maleficent - unfortunately it was not available in 3d (no glasses), i wasn't sure if it was just like that for mx4D or the film wasn't shot in 3d at the time so we just went for it. (Siam paragon had it in 3d though)
For 400 baht i kinda expected more, the screen was small for me but the seats were comfy - but one person in our row kept moving during the beginning of the film and i could feel it and it was very annoying.
The chair moved at times and there was some movement inside the chair which was fun. Some water sprayed on our faces and a certain perfume too which smelled ok - it depends on the scene, and it kinda felt repetitive as the movie went on.
Anyways, it would've been nice if it was at least 3d, it really took away from the experience.

Updated Review
Nov 2019
I initially gave SF cinema at CentralWorld a 5 star review last week as we had a very nice movie experience in theatre 11 seated in the back row on the newly fitted reclining sofas with electric footrests.

However I have updated my review to 1 star after a shockingly bad return tonight in theatre 14.

We booked the same back row sofas but the footrests were not present so not as comfortable as theatre 11.

When movie started the soundtrack was 2 seconds out of calibration with the picture and movie was unwatchable.

We left after 15 minutes of the main movie as we could not enjoy movie as soundtrack was so out of sync.

I went to ticket counter and asked for a refund but was refused so I asked to speak to manager who said we had been in theatre 40 minutes.

Yes 40 minutes but 25 minutes had been adverts and trailers !

Manager only offered a voucher valid for 3 months which was pathetic.

After a lot of arguing they agreed a refund but I left annoyed that they did not act fairly.

If a cinema cannot get a movie experience right that is pretty poor
Refusing a refund and having to argue to get one was also very poor

Top notch cinema
Sep 2019 • Solo
Bigger than other branches of SF around Bangkok, good sound systems and very comfy seats, but also over performing air conditioning (it’s really cold inside). Tickets rather on a cheap side, available online or at the booth or from vending machine. Food and drinks from outside are not allowed, but can be bought at numerous stalls inside theater inside.

Rude employees
Aug 2019 • Family
I saw a movie here in the Mastercard First Class Cinema. Comfortable seats, great audio/visual experience. Since we arrived late, we didn't have a chance to eat the free food beforehand. After the movie my sister grabbed a pasta dish and started to unwrap it. From across the room an employee started yelling, "No no no no no!!" and came running over. He then kept saying, "No after!!" So fine, we left.

First, if we're paying 1000 baht for a "first class" experience, the level of customer service should be slightly better than piss-poor. Second, for that theater they should be hiring staff who can speak English. Crappy overall impression of the theater, and a bad memory of Thailand to take home and share with friends. Wish I hadn't wasted my money here.

Amazing experience
Jun 2019 • Couples
Caught a movie on a late night on weekday. Bought the couple sofa seats at 500baht, worth it! The entire theatre was empty except us! Haha. The commercial was super long though, around 30 mins and you had to stand to pay respect to the king right before the movie is played. I enjoyed the experience very much!
