This Pop-Up Cinema Lets You Watch Rare Films for Free

This isn't your typical movie night!

( Whether you’re a movie buff, an eager newbie, or just in it for the ride, you’re sure to appreciate the films being screened at Cinema Silencio. A small pop-up that exists only every Wednesday night at XX XX in Makati, they show cult films, timeless classics, and everything in between, transforming the usually rowdy dance club transforms into a quiet and cozy space for moviegoers. The best part is that screenings are usually free, but you can also call ahead in case there’s a door charge.
