What does this mean?
1 Terabithia (EN/TH)
1 GoodShepher (EN/TH)
2 GhostRider (EN/TH)
4 HarshTimes (EN/TH)
6 300 (EN/TH)
5 Mr.Bean (EN/TH)

Sometimes English and sometimes Thai?
English with Thai Subtitles?

I got it from the website: www.majorcineplex.com
The girl selling tickets specifically told my g/f who is Thai and went alone to ask if Mr. Bean was in English. The girl said "NO, only Thai".
Maybe she meant theater 12? 12 Mr.Bean (TH/--)

Does it matter if it is only in Thai. The Bean does not speak?

The cinema in Udon has a habit of dubbing all western movies into Thai with no English subtitles but many of the Asian movies will have English subtitles.
If you look at the majorcineplex website and look at other areas where more falang resisde you will see that they have many western movies with the original soundtrack.
So we are in a Catch 22 situation, they won't put on more original soundtrack movies until more falang attend and we are not going to attend until there are more original soundtracks!
There was a post a few weeks back saying that they were showing the 300 movie in it's original state and would be good if a few of us falang went to see it to encourage them to do it more often.
I went, pretty good film but I was rather lonely though :?

The key - is the word 'soundtrack' - this means with the 'original' soundtrack - usually English (well American then). You just have to time it right.
Also consider watching it if it has English subtitles as it is almost as good.

Regarding Mr Bean, I believe there is some speech in this movie, especially as he tries to practice his French language.

Has anyone seen this film yet ???
