100% Free Movies, 50% Subtitled

The Thai Film Festival shows some of Thailand's most popular movies.

Psst. You know that bucket of popcorn you can get at the movies? We know you're only going to the theater for that thing. You can't possibly be going for cultural enrichment via fart jokes or dogs running some sort of hotel, right?

Good thing the Thai Film Festival (which kicked off last month) is going on for two more weeks at the Royal Thai Embassy (1024 Wisconsin Ave. N.W.).

The embassy is showing popular Thai movies, both current and past. The upcoming movies include a documentary and an animated flick. You can catch 'em the next two Thursdays and Fridays.

Admission is free, but seating is limited. RSVP to Sumont Sartsakul at sumontw@thaiembdc.org or 202-298-4795. And we apologize, but we doubt the embassy sells those $15 buckets of popcorn.
