BANGKOK, 12 June 2014 – Those who are free on Sunday are in for a special treat, as the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) has declared it is making the 11am screening of the latest King Naresuan movie available to the public free on Sunday, at 160 cinemas throughout the country.
Army spokesperson, Col. Winthai Suwari, said on Wednesday that the NCPO was arranging the screening as part of its efforts to foster reconciliation in the nation. People will be able to receive the free tickets from NCPO officials who will be stationed at each of the 160 participating cinemas.
According to Sahanongkol Film, owner of the rights to the movie, each person will receive one ticket when he/she shows up to get the ticket at 10.30 am. The cost of the single screening will be shouldered by the production house and the cinemas, and no money from taxpayers will be used.
