  1. SFX is a modern cinema in Phuket’s Central complex. It is kept nice and cool and shows the latest movies. There are plenty of good eating options at central, so it is good to spend an evening or afternoon visiting shops and eating a nice meal after the film.

  2. I always come here as I think it is the best cinema in Phuket. But I think need some maintenance now. I have been in cinema number 3 and my seat was not in a good condition and armrest is broken. Also ladies toilet, my wife said many of them are out of order.

  3. Always get a good deal by watching on every Wednesday, only 120 thb for deluxe seat. Good sound system & air con, nice & clean toilet. Snacks and drinks price are crazy but is still best in Phuket.

  4. The cinemas was comfortable and big, had to line up for a while to get tickets, it took ages for some people to buy a ticket. I am not sure why it takes people so long just to select a seat. Saw mockingjay part 2, was disappointed and was glad when it finished.

  5. 3D cinema here was not bad but not that great while the price is high. Seats, I mean not the first class one were comfortable enough. Unfortunately there were too many kids that time, so we heard kids’ voice more than movie sound.

  6. Became one of their regular customers since Central Festival opened because there are many update movies with soundtrack version, clean and comfortable seats. Although the ticket price is more expensive now (180 Baht), but many good promotions. Anyway I still see 2-3 movies/month, and my latest movie was “The Equalizer”… enjoyed it a lot!

  7. Save some money by going on a Wednesday, as the tickets are cheaper on Wednesday and if you are going to eat Sizzler, which is right by the cinema has a cheap promotion meals on Wednesday.

  8. Movies are up to date and yes soundtrack version is available. Their movie schedule on the website is always changing, you need to call them to confirm, but depends on your luck that the staff would pick up the telephone or not!!

  9. This could be the best cinema in Phuket right now. I always come here for movies. It is just in Central Festival Mall making this cinema surrounded by everything we can enjoy our day. Anyway, you must understand the traffic in front of the mall and be patient for parking. Come a bit earlier then it always become easier of course!

  10. Clean and comfortable seats. Up to date cinemas and dolby surround system. Good service especially staff at ticket counter that politely speaking. Can spent time to dining, shoping or hang around while waiting for the movie time.

  11. Air-con on full blast. Bring a sweater! Great place, clean, awesome sound.

  12. Best cinema Phuket has to offer. Optional first class luxury sofas. 3D screen. Just double check the language & subtitles before you book.

  13. I went there last week, sofa seat very comfortable but a bit expensive…
    Anyway, good thing is there are many promotions here, pls check all of them carefully or tell the staff what privilege you’re entitled for before buying a ticket. ^_^

  14. First Class

    Just experienced the first class cinema….awesome!

    Amazing seat and space, butler service and loads of yummy snacks before (FREE!). So dont eat before.

    Only 1 screen so plan ahead and a bargain at 500 baht.


    Great but a little cold, so wrap up.
