In case you missed it, Philippine cinemas are finally reopening this November 10 as more places are put under Alert Level 3. The only rules that are needed to be followed are that only 30% of the venue capacity is allowed, moviegoers should be fully vaccinated, and that they must be a seat apart from each other. Despite these rules and restrictions, though, this is still good news for those who’ve been missing the experience of watching movies on the big screen!
If you’re like us who’s missed the cinemas, you might already have a long list of films that you’d want to watch once they open! Below, we’re sharing our own wishlist of films we hope will premiere in PH cinemas soon. Check it out here:
