The line-up includes The Earrings Madame De... today at 6pm, followed by French Cancan at 8pm; and Eyes Without A Face tomorrow at 6pm followed by Neon Demon at 8pm.

Five films will be screened this Saturday, starting at 11am: Chocolat, 0 For Conduct, Le Grand Restaurant, The Science Of Sleep and Band Of Outsiders. Four more films are reserved for Sunday starting at 2pm: Panic in Bangkok, La Femme Nikita, Léon: The Professional and Monsieur Gangster.

There is no admission fee to the exhibition but the fee for film screenings is 120 baht (60 baht for students and Alliance members).
