I've rated this poor largely on value for money, considering the other excellent premier cinema experience available in this complex - the 'First Class' experience which has been well reviewed below. And tickets for the standard screens are 3-4 times less expensive that the Porch. But there's a bit more to say, otherwise I wouldn't bother sharing a review: I... More

I only used the Porch once to see a film. I treated a local Thai Girl. You are treated like VIP guests, but there is a premium price approx 700 baht per each. A one off. You watch the movie from your own Circular comfy bed, which is just amazing. It was a great experience really enjoyed it. Everything was... More

Although the page is titled “the Porch”, there is no separate review page for the other class of theaters at Central Beach Pattaya (and other related cinemas). My review will feature the “FIRST CLASS CINEMA”. The airplanes have “economy”, “business” and “first class” – so why shouldn’t the movie theater! We decided to see Fast and Furious 7 as soon...

To watch the Fast & Furious 7 we (a couple) decided to go to "The Porch" which has huge beds where you can really relax while watching the movie. It was our 1st time there so we didn't know what's going on. When we paid for it (1200 THB per couple) the guy showed us a price list with snacks... More

Not cheap by Thai standards but you do have huge beds to relax on whilst you watch the movie plus free cocktail and snacks BUT the noise from the bowling alley next door makes for an overall unpkeasant experience. Go to the first class instead .. More expensive but worth it!

The Porch is an expensive (by Thai standards) cinema within the SFX multiplex cinema at Central Festival Pattaya Beach shopping mall. It is an 'open air' cinema serving complementary popcorn, prawn crackers and a cocktail on a choice of round bed sofas or reclining beds. The price is 1,200 Baht per couple. For this premier product we had to contend... More

Nice and relaxing way to watch your favourite cinema releases. We had a round bed type couch that was strange but comfortable. The only down side was that it is a little cold inside and I could hear some one snoring, so perhaps a little to comfortable for some
