10 films to watch out for and watch at SM Cinema Seaside City Cebu this 2016

In late 2015, SM Seaside City Cebu redefined premium cinema experience by launching Southeast Asia’s first laser projection system and a large format theater called SM Large Screen Cinema. The theater boasts of a supersized screen which is almost 30% larger than the regular cinema screen size, a 3D platform that accurately reproduces the colors of an actual movie set, and a Dolby Atmos Sound System and top-of-the-line Christie Vive Speakers. This is shop talk for – OMG this is an awesome way to watch movies – said any cinephile having a mindgasm. SM Large Screen Cinema can seat up to 351 guests in a stadium-like setting.

SM Cinema Seaside City Cebu also houses the “Center Stage,” an 830-seater hybrid between a cinema and a stage theater which is perfect for movie premieres, pageants, concerts, and other occasions. Specially created to cater to special events, the venue is equipped with theater lighting, two (2) standard dressing rooms, and one (1) star dressing room. On days that the theater is not used for events, it offers an impressive space for movie watching – and this is on top of four (4) regular cinemas, two (2) Director’s Club Cinemas and the SM Large Screen Cinema, making SM Seaside City Cebu the premier entertainment capital of Cebu City!

After Mamma Mia, Wicked and Phantom of the Opera – I have always said that the only other foreign musicals that I will be going out of my way for, should they come to Manila, are The Lion King, Miss Saigon, and Les Miserables.

On March 2016, I am about to tick one of my dream musicals off my list as producer Cameron Mackintosh announced via press release, “After its Sydney and Brisbane run, I’m delighted to be bringing this new version to Manila in March, with a wonderful cast that includes the current London star playing Fantine, acclaimed Philippine actress Rachelle Ann Go…”

“The love that lasts the longest is the love that is never returned.” – William Somerset Maugham

For whether we admit it or not, we are all sappy when it comes to love. And in our lifetime, we all have that one heartbreak that molds us into the person that we see staring at us in the mirror every day. It doesn’t matter how old we were when it happened; whether you are a girl or a guy, heartbreak is something that we all share. Whether we move on from it or simply tell ourselves that we have – this memory will always bring back a bitter smile that tugs at our hearts until the end.

Review: The Bluebird of Happiness

 

review-poster-1

Manila, Philippines, October 4, 2013. A long-delayed follow-up to 2009’s N.O.A.H. (No Ordinary Aquatic Habitat), Trumpets’ new production “The Bluebird of Happiness,” a musical adaptation of Maurice Maeterlinck’s play of the same name, featuring music by Rony Fortich and book and lyrics by Jaime del Mundo, tells a story set on Christmas Eve, at the height of the frustration of siblings Mytyl and Tyltyl over not having the material things they think would make their lives better. It is a scene that is familiar not only among children but even adults. Mytyl and Tyltyl’s frustration is a reminder of lives that are driven by making ends meet or by achieving material wants that makes us lose sight of the very things that should have made us happy in the first place.

In the season of giving, it is ironic that this is also the time when people’s discontent and despair seem to manifest the most. And as these kids go on a quest to find true happiness through past and future, through greed and luxury, and through darkness and light, we go along with them realizing our own penchant for always wanting more than what we have. Through wondrous music and a spectacular production, “The Bluebird of Happiness” reconnects us with simple joys that provide more meaning in our lives than any material possession can offer.

High profile public relations practitioner Joyce Ramirez, who enjoys as much popularity, celebrity status and following as the brands and endorsers that she has handled, talked to us about her latest digital media management venture, her strategy in handling the infamous black ops in social media, and her big switch to GLOBE Telecom after a quick but memorable stint with the competing network.

Joyce has three (3) agencies to date: PR ASIA – the mothership agency which handles traditional and digital PR with offices in Manila & Bangkok; Creative Media Group – a Los Angeles based unit that brokers entertainment deals such as Hollywood endorsers (as well as overseas production shoot management); and most recently INTERXN – a digital media management group that handles some of the biggest digital influencers in the country today.
