Phya Thai Palace, the lesser-known former royal residence near Victory Monument, opens its doors in the evening for the first time in many years as it celebrates its 101st anniversary with a series of stunning light shows. For one month, vibrant lights will light up the facade and interiors of the palace’s various buildings, accentuating its enduring neoclassical motifs. The palace grounds will showcase lighting installations by five of Thailand’s leading lighting artists: Ama Studio, Designkit, Na Satta, FOS Lighting Design, and LightSource. The lighting showcase will go on from 18:00 to 21:00 every night until March 16. Tickets are priced at B200 for Thai adults and B400 for foreigners and are available on Zip Events.

A Quiet Place Part II

Release date: October 1

No Time to Die
MGM

No Time to Die

Release date: October 7

Daniel Craig’s fifth and last outing as 007 sees the now-retired agent briefly going back into action to chase after yet another mysterious baddie who plans to cause chaos with destructive new technology.

The Suicide Squad
Warner Bros

The Suicide Squad

Release date: October 1

Don’t confuse this with the critically-panned 2016 attempt at giving life to a troop of crazy DC supervillains back in 2016. The Suicide Squad (as opposed to just “Suicide Squad”) is the sequel-slash-reboot, as well as an ambitious undertaking to overshadow the reputation of the original incarnation. It’s directed by James Gunn (you know, of Marvel’s Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy fame), so it would be interesting to see how the movie pans out.
