Pattaya’s Singha D’Luck Cinematic Theatre opened its huge outdoor amphitheater last month to 15 charity groups for “Happiness Begins at the Kaan Show”

Chonburi Deputy Gov. Phawat Lertmukhda opened the Aug. 9 event for 1,000 children and senior citizens at the Thepprasit Road tourist attraction.

The crowd enjoyed a free performance of “Kaan”, a Thai movie projected on an oversized screen with live performers interacting with the images.

The story is about a librarian who is swept away into fantastical stories from Thai literature when he opens a book with his name on it.  More than 300 performers form the cast of the 90-minute production.

In addition to the film, the kids and seniors received free food and gifts from sponsors Singha Corp., Greyhound Cafe, Central Festival Pattaya Beach, Bangkok Pattaya Hospital, Cape Dara Resort, Avani Pattaya Resort & Spa, the Zign Hotel, Long Beach Garden Hotel & Spa and Ravindra Beach Resort & Spa.

Among the groups sending their charges to the performance were the Elderly Club of Chonburi, Bang­lamung Home for Boys, Banglamung Home for the Elderly, the Child Development and Rehabilitation Center, Helpless Persons Protection Center, Karun­yawet Home for Persons with Disabilities, Sirindhorn Women’s and Family Development Learning Center, Anti-Human Trafficking and Child Abuse Center, Fountain of Life, Father Ray Foundation, Human Help Network Thailand, Haven Children’s Home Chonburi-Pak Ping Kum Pai, and Ban Jing Jai Foundation.
