It doesn’t only happen in the movies, not just even in other countries. Metro Manila will also experience its very first drive-in cinema brought to us by SM Mall Of Asia. Aptly called Movies By The Bay, SM will treat its moviegoers starting this September 9, and will run every Wednesday to Sunday at the MOA Concert grounds in Pasay City.
Each movie ticket costs P400, inclusive of your preferred snacks and drinks. The drive-in cinemas will let your car play the movie audio from the car stereo through a radio frequency given to moviegoers. Guests may also bring their own radio and other devices with FM capabilities.
The venue can accommodate between 80 and 90 vehicles per screening, and individuals aged between 21 and 59 are the ones who will be admitted in accordance with IATF Guidelines and Safety Protocols. This measure is of course in order to ensure the safety of those who want to experience the outdoor movie scene.
Food concessions will be available on-site. A separate menu will be provided upon entering the SM Cinema Drive-in. For additional orders, simply raise your flags and a server will approach your vehicle to take your orders.
Two persons are allowed per vehicle with a maximum of four persons. To optimize the viewing experience for all our guests, each vehicle will be assigned their parking spots upon arrival depending on the size of their cars. Traffic marshals will assist guests and direct them to their designated spot.
SM’s first drive-in cinema happened at the SM Pampanga Amphitheater with a screening of Peninsula, the sequel to hit zombie movie Train To Busan. It’s currently open on weekends, from Friday to Sunday.
With all the heavily loaded Hollywood movies lined up for this year, we are pretty sure this drive-in cinema is worth a swerve and turns.
