UPDATED: Here's Where to Watch The Lion King If You Don't Like Big Crowds
And long lines, too!
(SPOT.ph) When a Hollywood blockbuster opens locally, there's no doubt people want to catch it as soon as they can. Avengers: Endgame, for example, had cinemas packed for weeks. Good thing some theaters provided alternatives to meet your unconventional schedule or preferences. You might want to watch movies as soon as they come out, but the long lines and crowded cinemas can be discouraging. The Lion King comes out in local cinemas on July 17 and if you want to skip the long ticket queue and watch the updated 3D version of this animated Disney classic in a smaller theater, Cinema '76 has you covered: they'll be screening the movie, too!
Tickets are priced at P250 per screening and you can watch it at these dates and times at their Anonas branch:
- July 17: 3 p.m. and 7:40 p.m.
- July 18: 5:10 p.m. and 9:50 p.m.
- July 19: 3 p.m. and 7:40 p.m.
- July 20: 5:10 p.m. and 9:50 p.m.
- July 21: 3 p.m. and 7:40 p.m.
- July 22: 5:10 p.m. and 9:50 p.m.
- July 23: 3 p.m. and 7:40 p.m.
While primarily screening local indie films, Cinema '76 also shows foreign movies and blockbusters. The micro-cinema has two branches: one in Anonas and one in San Juan. Both branches may have a modern aesthetic, but the theater is homey and comfortable with cushioned seats and pillows, without sacrificing video and audio quality—their facilities are on par with bigger local cinemas.
