Bangkok’s got a new spot for cinephiles who prefer more casual, homey digs over the monotony of multiplex theaters.
Sitting inside a two-story, mid-century residence in the heart of the city, Siri House — the brainchild of Sansiri PLC, one of the largest real estate development companies in Thailand — opened to the public in March, two months after its concept of the same name launched in Singapore.
With the aim of providing a “lifestyle, social and dining space bringing together people, art, design, food, and retail,” the venue recently joined hands with Sathorn independent cinema Bangkok Screening Room to launch an on-site theater called The House Cinema. The program was inaugurated with a screening of The Gospel According To Andre, a documentary that focuses on the fashion journalist Andre Leon Talley.
The next screening is scheduled at 7:30pm on July 1, when The House Cinema will show Antonio Lopez 1970: Sex Fashion & Disco, concerning the life and career of successful 1970s fashion illustrator Antonio Lopez. Tickets are THB450 per person and includes one drink. They can be purchased online.
Siri House Bangkok is open from 8pm until midnight every day. It’s located on Soi Somkid and is just a few minutes’ walk from BTS Chit Lom.
