Is There a Cinema in Trat?

Even though we lived on Koh Chang for over 2 years and now on the mainland for six months common consensus was that there was no cinema in Trat.

If you want to spend a night at the movies you had to go to Chanthaburi. Well that’s not strictly true because Trat does have a movie house, it’s just a small one and not one of those soulless cinema-plex places.

Cinema in Trat - Movie Cafe

The Kantana Movie Café is a place on the edge of town to catch a movie in intimate surroundings with a side order of tasty finger food.

Cinema Food - Trat

The actual cinema reminds me of a Soho test screening room. To enter the cinema you pass through the café where you can occupy a table and get eats like spaghetti, fish fingers and chunky chips along with soft drinks and beers.

Alternatively you can buy your finger food, popcorn, snacks and beverage and take them through to consume during the movie.

You can’t book tickets but if you spend more than 40 Thai baht in the movie café, you can watch movies for free.

Directions to the Movie Café

Take a local taxi from central Trat and ask the driver to go to Kantan Movie Cafe, I’m sure they know where to go! 555

If you are driving, pass the Tesco Lotus store on Sukhumvit Road. Carry on and pass Makro and then go over the bridge as you head out of the city. After crossing the bridge you will see the Co-operative Trat building on your right. The Katana Movie Café is next to it and they share a car park.

    Nice find! We went to one of these in Soi Dao. They’re springing up all over.

      We were going to go to Soi Dao to check it out but if it’s the same company, we will save ourselves a trip and stay in Trat! Cheers Dave.
