I invited two of my friends to watch “Las Gallinas de Cervantes” with me last Saturday at the new Cinematheque Centre Manila. I’m a certified Cinephile and I’ve been attending different film festivals over the last 10 years.


Cinematheque Centre Manila is definitely not your ordinary movie theater. It also houses the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) main office, classrooms for use by film advocates and industry leaders in conducting workshops, a café with posters of classic Filipino films, a souvenir shop and the Museo ng Pelikulang Pilipino (Film Museum).

Museo ng Pelikulang Pilipino is located on the ground floor of the building, just outside the theater. Statues of Filipino film greats Gerardo “Gerry” De Leon, Avellana, Brocka, and Manuel Conde are being being displayed at the Film Museum.


The Film Museum also houses several exhibits of film equipment and posters to miniatures of Manila’s historic film theatres that showcase Filipino film history.


If you plan to visit Cinematheque Centre Manila, make to visit their facebook page or FDCP’s website to keep you posted on their latest screenings.
