Here's how you can have an Italian movie experience without leaving Manila

Reclining leather seats and double popcorn servings? That's amore!

It's always a good idea to spend a few hours a week to unwind and forget about the stress of everyday life. Some prefer to relax with a long, soothing spa treatment, while others choose to literally escape by retreating to the great outdoors. But we don't always have the luxury of time to indulge in these activities, and sometimes, watching a great film while lounging in a comfy chair is more than enough to recharge our batteries.

Looking for a  more global, more indulgent cinematic experience? Head to the newly opened Venice Cineplex at the Venice Grand Canal, where you can tick all these off your checklist for the ultimate Italian-inspired movie night:

__ Book your tickets online
Make sure you'll catch the movie you want at the screening time of your choice by booking your tickets in advance at! Just present your booking confirmation at the ticket booth to claim your ticket—no more waiting in line!

__ Relax on luxurious reclining seats
The Venice Cineplex's VIP Cinema has ultra-comfy leather love seats with reclining backrests and comfortable leg rests, letting you watch the movie in utmost comfort. Each seat also has a lamp and a tray for your snacks, letting you relax in your seat without worrying about spilling your grub.

__ Enjoy a double dose of popcorn and drinks
Speaking of popcorn, watching a movie in the VIP Cinema gives you two servings of Venice Cineplex's perfectly seasoned popcorn, as well as one bottle of water and one can of soda. Just think: you'll never have to worry about running out of food while watching the pre-movie trailers!

__ Be attended to by a butler
Once the popcorn runs out, simply press a button on the console of your seat to summon a butler who can attend to your whims. You don't have to miss any minute of your movie!

__ Enjoy the cinema's state of the art technology
Venice Cineplex's Cinemas 2 and 5 features the cutting-edge Dolby Atmos System, which gives moviegoers an immersive, more realistic experience via strategically placed surround sound speakers. It's like you're really in the movie!

__ Enjoy a gondola ride down the Grand Canal
Just like in its namesake Italian city, a trip to Venice Cineplex would be lacking without a cruise down the mall's very own Grand Canal. Hop on their authentic Italian gondolas and be serenaded by their charming boatmen while enjoying the mall's Venetian architecture. Now that's amore!
