The producers and cinema owners have agreed to do this. The free showing will take place on Sunday 15 June 2014 at 11 a.m. at 160 cinemas across the country. There are about 35,000 tickets available. People interested should show up at least 30 minutes before the show. Only one ticket per person and they will be available until they run out. The movie tells the story of a 16th century Ayutthaya king fighting to free his country from the Burmese. The movie has already made 150 Million Baht in its first eleven days of release.
