BANGKOK — See the rise, stumble and tragic fall jazz superstar Amy Winehouse in Oscar-winning “Amy” later this month atop a five-story coworking space in the Thonglor area.

Director Asif Kapadia’s poignant tribute to the singer-songwriter follows her from struggling childhood into blossoming career to death five years ago from alcohol poisoning at 27.

The 128-minute British documentary, featuring rare footage and unheard tracks, won Best Documentary at the Academy Awards this year and became the highest-grossing British documentary of all time.

The movie starts at 7pm on Nov. 23 at the Hive Bangkok. The venue’s seating (Thai-style floor pillows and chairs) is limited to 60 people.

Tickets are available online for 300 baht (150 baht for members) and include a drink and “light snack.”

Hive Bangkok is a five-story coworking space assembled from converted shophouses in Soi Sukhumvit 49. It can be reached by foot and motorbike from BTS Thong Lo exit No. 1.
