It’s a Friday night, a new movie is showing in Cinemas, and you are definitely going. But, of course, one does not go to battle unprepared, and by that, we mean HACKS. Did you know there are hacks you can do to elevate your Cinema experience? Who wouldn’t want a no-hassle movie night?  

Lucky for you, SM Cinema Seaside City Cebu has four different hacks to ensure a smooth sailing film experience. So grab your pens and take note of these great hacks that lead to a multisensory experience as low as ₱370 each.

1. The Large Screen Format Cinema Experience

A screen almost 30% larger than the regular cinema screen size? Now that’s an upgrade!

Let’s face it; as moviegoers, what we look for in a fantastic cinema is a great sound system and a clear picture. Personally, we prefer a more surreal viewing experience where the colors are vibrant, and we can clearly see what we are watching.

This is why SM Cinema brings you the “Large Screen Format.” It features a super-sized screen that uses the Christie 6P laser projection system, reproducing the colors of the actual movie set. In addition, the Large Screen Format also uses the Dolby Atmos Sound System and Christie Vive Speakers. 

What’s great about this sound system is that it allows a riveting and immersive surround-sound movie experience.

2. Advance Ticket Selling

We’ve all tried being late to the movies, and the consequences were awful seats. But worry not; here’s a hack to help you with that. 

If you are planning a date with your significant other or even a date with yourself, you must book a ticket in advance. You can avail of a ticket at SM Seaside Cinemas during the advance ticket selling. This hack will get you the best seats in the house.
