World Class Cinema

World Class Cinema
The Shining
The Graduate
Jaws
The Housemaid
After The Wizard of Oz and Annie Hall, the Thai Film Archive has announced the next batch of films in this year’s World Class Cinema (ทึ่ง! หนังโลก) programme. Highlights over the next few months include Stanley Kubrick’s horror film The Shining (showing on 15th March), the ‘New Hollywood’ classic The Graduate (19th April), Steven Spielberg’s masterpiece Jaws (17th May), and the South Korean ‘golden age’ melodrama The Housemaid (하녀; 16th August).

The Shining was originally scheduled for last year’s World Class Cinema season, though Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange was shown instead. All screenings will take place at the Scala cinema in Bangkok.

The Shining was screened as scheduled, though the other films were cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. After cinemas reopened, international distribution rights to Jaws had changed, making a post-coronavirus screening impossible.
