Bangkok finally has an alternative cinema that it can be proud of: Doc Club & Pub officially opened to the public on Sunday, September 5th.
The reborn space, which formerly housed the Bangkok Screening Room inside the Woof Pack Building on Sala Daeng Soi 1, is a home from home for Thailand’s film buffs where they can enjoy their favorite 4K movies while enjoying some in-house foods and drinks.
However, the Doc Club & Pub’s soft opening sees the space operating on a restricted schedule, as the current Covid-19 controls restrict movies on the big screen for now.
While the main screening room has remained closed for some time, the Doc Club & Pub has said they would be showing some films from its vast collection on a large TV situated within its cafe zone, maintaining the cinema-inspired vibe that characterizes it.
The alt-cinema is running its soft opening programme from now until September 14. Movie fans can book a one-hour visit to the venue during three different time slots.
The three available schedules for the Doc Club & Pub are at noon, 2:30pm, and 5:30pm. Each schedule is limited at this time to only 12 visitors.
At the time of booking the visit, movie fans must pay a fee of 100 baht per person as a deposit, but it will be returned in full once they arrive at the lounge.
Those who would like to visit The Doc Club & Pub in the coming days are advised to contact the venue via their Facebook page to reserve your spot.
Among the booking options, moviegoers can choose to take in a single screening or book a private party to have a memorable night with friends.
Doc Club & Pub, operated and owned by the Documentary Club, occupies the second-floor of the Woof Pack building, around a 5 minute walk from BTS Sala Daeng.
The renovated space now features a minimalist-designed bar and cafe that gives Bangkok and Bangkokians a new home dedicated to art and culture.
The main screening room features 52 seats and early reviews have been positive, with attendees reporting how much they enjoyed their time.
The Documentary Club community, founded in 2014 through a crowdsourcing campaign, currently has more than 200,000 online followers.
