Catch a One-Time Screening of a Classic Mike De Leon Film This Month
Now try saying Kakabakaba Ka Ba? out loud five times straight.
(Spot.ph) Director Mike De Leon is known for his hard-hitting films (read: Citizen Jake, Kangkungan), but as someone who's been a headliner in his industry for decades, it's great to see just how varied his works actually are. Take the 1980 hit Kakabakaba Ka Ba?, a musical romantic comedy starring Christopher de Leon and Charo Santos, a remastered version of which will be screened at Cinema Centenario on May 25, Saturday, at 4 p.m.
De Leon plays Johnny, a Filipino everyman who becomes entangled in the drug-smuggling scene after accidentally getting hold of some high-grade opium. The film takes a comedic look at the connections between Japanese gangsters, Chinese mafia, and even the Catholic Church as the characters try to make it out okay.
Tickets for the one-time screening are P200 for regular rate, and P150 for students. They also honor the Senior Citizen discount so bring along your parents for a real blast from the past!
Cinema Centenario is located at 2/F 95 Maginhawa St., Teacher's Village East, Diliman, Quezon City. For inquiries and reservations, contact 0945-536-7054.
