Shangri-La Cinemas Re-Opens With Cine Europa, The Biggest International Film Festival In Manila
Ever wanted to walk the red carpet? Shangri-La Plaza lets you do that—and enjoy the whole VIP treatment while you’re at it, too! Experience all of these at Red Carpet, Shangri-La’s newly refurbished cinemas.
After months of upgrading what was once the Shang Cineplex, the Red Carpet will now offer an even more luxe experience from the lobby, the food and snack offering, to the whole theatre experience.
“We wanted to bring our patrons a luxurious experience of the cinema, a place where we would take care of all the details to bring them a cinematic experience like no other. This springs out into different aspects of the cinema too, the quality of the theatres and seats with top of the line equipment, world-class service, and convenience too. We’re proud to say that even the look and feel incorporates luxury at every turn,” says Shangri-La Plaza EVP and General Manager, Lala Fojas.
The all-new Red Carpet features four theatre halls and the Premiere Cinema , all with sleek leather seats, top-of-the-line Harkness Screens that offers the best 2D and 3D viewing, and the newest JBL surround-sound speakers. The Premiere Cinema has 70 spacious reclining seats with an adjoining bar and lounge.
For cinema chow, drop by the Red Carpet Cinebar which serves popcorn and hotdogs, plus some of our favorite cinema food stalls like Mrs. Fields and NYFD.
“We wanted your cinema experience to be one of the highlights whenever you visit the mall, and so we made the move to level up our theatres,” Shangri-La adds.
Opening with a bang
Shang Cineplex was often the venue of international film festivals and true to this nature, Red Carpet opened with an explosive 11-day European festival. Cine Europa will be premiered at the Red Carpet last December 7 to 16 with 28 movies from the 16 European Union member states.
Entrance was free for all the movies, plus, there were a lot of exciting activities like poetry reading, lectures on contemporary issues, and sports events.
The movie lineup included Cannes Film Festival entry ¡Bienvenido, Mister Marshall!, 2018 Cleveland International Film Festival entry Mademoiselle Paradis, Romanian GOPO Audience Awardee Selfie 69, and 2015 Swedish comedy film Holy Mess.
More than movies
More than just satisfying your movie fix, Red Carpet is also a great venue for private screenings and events. Their online ticketing portal also makes bookings and ticketing easier, plus the cinema membership, E-SEE Club lets you enjoy perks and reward points that can be redeemed for parking coupons, movie passes, and Cinebar treats.
