With the opening of Robinsons Place Jaro Movieworld, movies are now made more accessible to me and other residents of Jaro and nearby districts. I was one of those people who eagerly looked forward to watching movies there.
Last week, I was finally able to go and see two Metro Manila Film Festival movies at Robinsons Movieworld after the holiday frenzy has died down. I just had to watch both Die Beautiful and Ang Babae sa Septic Tank one the same afternoon as I can no longer hold my curiosity as these two are among the most talked about MMFF entries.
Well, I was not disappointed with the movies. It was a very enlightening and entertaining afternoon for me, even made more pleasurable by Robinsons Place Jaro Movieworld’s facilities.
Allow me to share with you the reasons why I like the cinema.
As I mentioned before, mall is located in Jaro where I also live, which means less travel time for me. Under normal traffic, it only takes me 20 minutes to get there so I seldom arrive late for a movie. I still have ample time to line up for the tickets, buy my popcorn and drinks, and choose the best seat in the cinema.
The cinema is smaller than the one at Robinsons Place Iloilo, but it does not mean you will enjoy less comfort. The plush seats are very comfortable and big enough for even those on the heavy side. You can enjoy the movie without craning your neck if someone is sitting in front of you.
It also has a wide space at the back reserved for those who come in wheelchairs so even the disabled or elderly can enjoy watching movies there. The space can fit about 3 wheelchairs.
Airconditioning is great; however, some people might find it too cold so it is best to bring a sweater or jacket just in case.
More Snack Options
The cinema has its own snack bar that sells chips, drinks and the all-time favorite popcorn. My movie experience is not complete without a bag of popcorn. Popcorn are sold in different flavours - butter, cheese and barbecue. The also offer combo snacks where you get popcorn and a drink for a lesser price.
Aside from the snack bar, there are also other food shops nearby. The cinema is located at the 3rd floor of the mall, which is where the Food Gallery is also located. There you will find an assortment of shakes, wraps, salads, hotdogs and more.
There is also Taters just a couple of meters from the stairs going to the cinema. This popular food chain sells flavoured fries and popcorn as well as nachos, munchers and drinks.
Of course, picture and sound quality is very important. Well, the cinema has the finest and modern equipment in the industry, which is why I always have a wonderful movie experience every time I go there.
So what movie will I watch next? I am still choosing between Passengers and Assassin’s Creed, or maybe have a movie marathon and watch both. One thing for sure, whatever movie I decide on, it will be another happy time for me at Robinsons Place Jaro Movieworld.
