CityMall cinemas opens in Boracay

TIME was when residents in the island of Boracay had to leave the island by boat and travel for hours just to watch a movie. Now, thanks to CityMall Commercial Centers Inc. (CMCCI), the community mall development arm of listed property firm DoubleDragon Properties Corp. (DD), they can now catch the latest movie releases and blockbusters with the recent inauguration of the first cinemas on the island, located at CityMall-Boracay, already a top commercial destination in the area.

The first cinemas at CityMall-Boracay was launched in partnership ABS-CBN Corp.,  which is one of the many cinemas that CityMall is progressively rolling out in its branches across the country, including theaters in CityMall-Anabu in Imus, Cavite; CityMall-Consolacion in Cebu; CityMall-Dumaguete; and CityMall-Mandalagan in Bacolod, all of which are already in operation. 

“The addition of cinemas in Boracay is part of our thrust of bringing modern conveniences to the island,” said Ferdinand Sia, President of DD. ”Residents can now enjoy the latest box-office releases without having to travel out, adding more leisure activities to be enjoyed.”

The cinemas at CityMall-Boracay boast of 2 theaters with a seating capacity of 220, as well as a state-of-the-art projection and sound system that is comparable to cinema houses in metropolitan areas. 

And for its grand opening salvo, CityMall-Boracay screened no less than Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the second film in the exciting Star Wars sequel trilogy.
