Coronavirus Lockdown


Suthep Thaugsuban and his anti-government protesters launched an unsuccessful ‘Shutdown Bangkok’ campaign in 2014, though the current coronavirus pandemic has led to a global shutdown. Bangkok is under lockdown, and many events in the city have been cancelled. These include a gala screening of A Man Called Tone (โทน) at the Scala cinema, and the สยองขวัญ Uncut (‘horror uncut’) season at Thammasat University. Some films were shown last month at the Thai Film Archive in Salaya, though their screening of Dang Bireley’s and Young Gangsters [sic] (2499 อันธพาลครองเมือง) on 20th March was cancelled. Screenings of Manhattan at the House Samyan cinema, originally scheduled for 28th and 29th March, have been postponed.
