Bangkok's long been renowned as home to some of the world's most luxurious cinemas—and here's another to add to the list.  

Icon Cineconic, the Major Cineplex Group’s brand-new flagship cinema, has opened at IconSiam, spread over 6th, 7th and 8th floors of the luxury mall.  

The estimated B200 million cinema complex was designed under the concept of “Futuristic Tradition” by the renowned designer Diego Gronda, who has worked on many of the world’s top cinemas including Los Angeles’ Kodak Theater, New Delhi’s PVR Cinemas and a slew of Bangkok’s top cinemas: Paragon Cineplex, Quartier Cineplex, Embassy Diplomat Screens and MEGA Cineplex. 

The cinema consists of a total 2,781 seats spread over 13 screens, which include one VIP “Thai Smooth as Silk Premier Cinema” screen (B2,400 per pair seating), one IMAX screen (from B250 per person), one 4DX screen (from B400/person), one Kid’s Cinema (from B220/person), nine normal screens (from B110/person) and one 30-capacity “Living Room Theater,” which guests can rent for private parties. 

All normal screens are equipped with Laserplex laser projection, which boasts next-level image sharpness, while other highlights at the cinema include “Smart Ticket Scan and Go”, enabling moviegoers to scan their Smart Ticket via QR code; “Iconic Dine-In Cinema,” with food and beverages brought to you by a personal butler as you watch movies from the VIP Opera Chairs (B800-1,000 per pair seating); and “Popcorn Bar,” which offers a large variety of popcorn flavors, including Thai-style satay and crab curry sauce, exclusive to this cinema.
