Thais clamber for free movie tickets as army promotes patriotism

By Ronald Popeski and Jutarat Skulpichetrat BANGKOK (Reuters) – Thousands of Thais thronged cinemas on Sunday to grab free tickets to an epic film featuring a medieval king, given away by military authorities keen to kindle patriotic feeling after seizing power to end months of unrest. Hundreds have been detained since the putsch, most close to ousted Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, pitted against protesters allied with the Bangkok establishment. The army’s campaign to “return Thailand to happiness” has included free concerts and an order to broadcasting authorities to show all World Cup soccer games on free-to-air channels. Organizers relented and disappointed patrons, many with small children, were offered cheap tickets at a later screening.
