    Watch a movie in a SUPER-VIP theatre

    Siam Paragon

    Watching a movie in a theatre is just like travelling in economy class, but you deserve better! Try the 'Bangkok Airways Blue Ribbon Screen' and spend 2 hours in La-Z-Boy couple sofas with fluffy blankets and pillows while waiters pour some wine and serve you little cakes. That's equivalent to flying business class and costs 1,500 baht for 2.

    If you're a first-class flyer, you have no choice but going to the Enigma screen theatre at Siam Paragon where real meals are served and you watch the movie in a full-size bed!
