After more than a year of Netflix parties and streaming our favorite films from home, cinemas are finally opening up again! With safety precuations set in place, several establishments have been dusting off (and sanitizing) their movie theaters to welcome back all movie-goers.
For those who want a more special return to the theaters, SM has a thrilling promo ongoing: From November 17 to December 24, branches of the SM Cinema Director's Club can be booked for an exclusive screening!
Parties of 12 will be treated to having the whole theater to themselves for rates as low as P5,200 if they make a reservation on Mondays to Thursdays between 11:00AM to 5:00PM. On peak hours (A.K.A. Mondays to Thursdays between 5:01PM to 11:59PM, and the whole day of Friday to Sundays,) rates can go from P7,700 to P8,500 for groups of 18-20.
All reservations have to be made four days in advance. See all the participating branches and the detailed mechanics here.
Of course, IATF guidelines are enforced to ensure the safest movie-watching experience for all. The promo is only open to fully-vaccinated individuals, and facemasks are still a must. You'll also have to skip on the popcorn for now since food and drinks, aside from bottled water, aren't allowed yet to minimize any contact.
To check out the titles you can enjoy on the big screen, head on over to the SM Cinema Facebook page (tip: Much anticipated films such as Dune starring Timothee Chalamet and the Kristen Stewart-fronted Spencer are already showing.)
