It’s not too late! Experience these Unique Cinemas in the Metro

We are all fans of movies and big screens. However, the world has been dangerous since the pandemic’s occurrence.

Though we could watch movies in the comfort of our own homes, there is something about going to actual movie theatres that we miss.

Even though cinemas have recently reopened, there is still some debate about whether going to the movies is a good idea.

But how about we tell you that you can still go to the movies without sacrificing your safety?

Yes, it’s true!

You can now take a break from your own television screen and enjoy the magic of movies in the great outdoors.

Make Christmas merrier and get to know the metro’s unique cinemas for a one-of-a-kind experience.

While this was already available to the public a year ago, it’s not too late to enjoy this drive-in movie experience launched by SM Cinema.

SM Cinema has already given the public a taste of their new old-fashioned moviegoing experience at SM Pampanga’s Amphitheater.

At the SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds, SM Cinema then introduced its “Movies by the Bay” experience.

Now, what could be more romantic than watching movies by the bay, with a view of the sky and the sun setting over the sea?

This ‘movie by gondola’ moment is easily a personal fave.

If you think the movie by the bay is romantic, I think this one tops it.

Nothing beats the experience of watching movies on a boat as if you’re on the world-famous Venice Grand Canal in Italy.

Venice Grand Canal Mall in Taguig, launched this Venice-themed movie experience last year, which happens to be the Philippines’ first float-in cinema.

This is like something straight out of a movie, so I’m not sure what’s stopping you from trying it out!

Boutique Theatre: Sine Pop

Philippine Microcinemas, such as Cinema ’76, Cinematheque Centre Manila, etc., are popular go-to movie houses for that intimate cinematic experience.

But due to the CoVid-19 pandemic restrictions, some of them had to stop their operation.

Although some have gradually reopened this year, new ones have offered pop-up movie theaters to the public after some were mostly closed last year.

Sine Pop, a boutique cinema, has since become a hit.


It is the newest pop-up cinema, operating in a restored post-war house in Cubao with a unique green bamboo garden.

This is defined as “the cinema in the bamboo forest” by some, which makes it even more fascinating to try.

This ‘post-war meets modern’ cinema definitely exudes an air of exclusivity and art.

Put on your best #OOTD and go watch movies unfold on the big screen in these unique and memorable experiences.
