“Cinema Classics” is part of ABS-CBN Film Restoration Project, in partnership with Ayala Cinemas, to locally restore classic Filipino films and make it available to the general public via different platforms.
Meanwhile, the exhibition formally opens on January 10, 2017 via the premiere of the 1998 hit romantic film “Labs Kita… Okey Ka Lang?” to be attended by its lead stars: Mavin Agustin and Jolina Magdangal.
According to Leo Katigbak, head of ABS-CBN Film Restoration Project, “hopefully, the audiences show up to support these films. That’s what will make it viable for cinema chains to consider having classics or even indie movies running on a regular and continuing basis.”
Up-to-date, there were over 120 films that have been restored, some of which were already screened internationally via film fests, screened locally via red carpet premieres, aired on free-to-air and cable television, viewed via pay-per-view and video-on-demand, distributed on DVD, and downloadable even on iTunes.
Invite your friends to watch “Cinema Classics” this January and meet the characters who once captivated the hearts of the Filipino audience.
