New SF Cinema Opens in Ubon Ratchathani

While Andrew is living the high life in Australia, I thought I’d take 5 minutes to give you guys and girls a quick update on the new cinema that opened up here in Ubon Ratchahtnai yesterday.

After many delays yet with much joy, Ubon Ratchanthani welcomes it’s third, and newest Cinema. The new 7 theatre SF Cinema, which includes a 3D theatre and comfortable premium sofas, is now finally open for business. It’s located on the 4th floor of the City Mall, the same complex as the Sunee Hotel in situated in.

I think many would agree the SF Cinema here in Ubon is a welcome addition to the city, especially for western visitors and expats like myself, who miss being able to catch a movie with the original English soundtrack.

On opening, the ticket prices are as follows:

  • Monday to Tuesday – 100b for delux, 120b for premium and 300b for the double couch.
  • Wednesday – 70b for delux, 90b for premium and 300b for the double couch.
  • Thursday to Sunday – 120b for delux, 140b for premium and 400b for the double couch.

It’s worth checking the SF Cinema Ubon website for movie listings and schedules, as the films in English are currently few and do not run frequently. Hopefully this will change in the future.

So what do you think? Will you be heading down there to catch a film anytime soon?
