The CityMall Premier Cinema Bacolod promises a whole new level of superior movie experience for the people of Bacolod. Located at the 2nd floor of CityMall Mandalagan, the new cinema is the first of its kind in the City of Smiles.
My husband and I along with other Bacolod bloggers thoroughly enjoyed our experience at the CityMall Premier Cinema Bacolod. We watched The Greatest Showman starring Hugh Jackman and it was a flurry of emotions, well, at least for me. I totally loved the movie, as the human struggle resonated in my life, plus, I loved the movie experience. I was able to cry in privacy. haha
Located at the second floor of CityMall Mandalagan, the Premier Cinema is just behind Cinema 1. However, you will have to walk several meters in order to reach the inside of the theater.
Watch the entrance going to the cinema:
When you buy tickets at the ticket booth, you can choose your seat number. There are only 40 seats–all plush, reclining lazyboy seats with motorized movements. All you need is to press buttons to recline or to sit upright. No struggling with your seats here, unlike the other lazyboy chairs I have tried.
Of course, with a limited capacity cinema like that, it’s a first come-first serve basis. We especially liked the row of D3 to D6–it’s just the right distance for me because it’s in the middle area of the theater. It’s not too near and not too far either.
And we really appreciate it that we couldn’t see the heads in front of us because each level is adequately elevated. There are no distractions at all as you watch your favorite show.
All in – All out
The CityMall Premier Cinema Bacolod follows the All in – All out rule, so you cannot have an encore. The seats, as I’ve said, is limited so your seats now will be someone else’s for the next show. Make sure to be at the theater minutes before the show time you want to be in.
CityMall Premier Cinema Bacolod Price
For all the comfort and technological advantage of the CityMall Premier Cinema Bacolod, ticket costs only P250. I think it’s such a great deal. There are no other perks, except for the movie viewing. But you can buy snacks outside, if you prefer.
CityMall Premier Cinema Bacolod is the swankiest Bacolod cinema to date. Once you have tried catching a movie there, I don’t think you will want to go to other cinemas anymore. For so little the price difference, you get so much more in terms of comfort and privacy. So it’s totally worth the few extra pesos you will add on top of your regular cinema ticket.
But since it’s only just one cinema, the only disadvantage here would be the choices of the movies. I really hope that they only show worthy movies here. And judging from a good start in showing The Great Showman, I think that they have great films being lined up at the CityMall Premier Cinema Bacolod.
