This Newly Renovated Cinema in Manila Is Every Moviegoer's Dream Come True
And you can even book your tickets through an app!
(SPOT.ph) At a time when you can easily just pick out a movie or show to watch on your laptop screen at home, it might need a bit more convincing to head out and watch a flick on the big screen. But when you can easily book movie tickets at Newport Mall's newly renovated Ultra Cinema 1 with the touch of a finger, there's no argument left to be made. You'll be there faster than you can whisper, "Resorts World Manila."
Ultra Cinema 1 was included in Architecture and Design's list of the most beautiful cinemas in the world in 2015. But they didn't stop there. Now, they've got new, semi-enclosed leather reclining seats. And yes, the recliner chair goes all the way down when you adjust the handy buttons on the armrest! You might never go back to watching a movie with your laptop on your chest, tbh.
You've got more than enough space on the middle armrest-slash-table for your food and drinks—and you're going to need it. A seat at the luxurious cinema also comes with free-flowing popcorn and soda that you don't even have to get yourself. Why? Oh, because the cinema also has a personal butler service that you can access with the press of a button.
The seat also has LED lamps that won't bother the person behind you when you're trying to look for something in your seat (or that kernel of popcorn that fell in your shirt). Plus, each seat comes with USB ports, which means you can charge your phone! (It's still supposed to be on silent mode, though.)
And if you're thinking that it's going to be difficult booking a ticket, then it's time to download the RWM Mobile Companion app on your phone. You can easily check out what's showing at the cinema, choose which one you're going to watch, pick a seat, and pay for the ticket, all on one app. You'll just have the QR code on your phone scanned when you enter the cinema.
The app isn't just for movies, though. You can also check out everything else happening around Resorts World Manila from theater shows to sales to shuttle services. And if you get lost, you can use the Wayfinder feature to find your way around the stores and restaurants. Or you can use the live chat and message the concierge about any questions you have, like, "How soon can I book a ticket?!"
