The most unworthy, nakakabadtrip, nakakasira ng mood, nakakasira ng araw - P450 I've ever spent. 128544

Hello SM, Hello IMAX.

It's been a while since I last saw a movie in IMAX because I feel like I only have to watch here if there's a very special movie worthy of watching on this very expensive movie theater. Eg: Interstellar

Whenever I watch movies, I would only watch in Promenade Cinemas cause a movie only costs P250 with surround sounds Dolby Atmos plus they have the tastiest popcorn and the AC is always on full power.
I don't want to compare sana pero yung value ng pera ko hindi ko nakuha sa IMAX sana nanuod nalang ako ng 2nd viewing ko sa Promenade ulit. Hay.

I decided to watch AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR the second time around in SM Mall of Asia IMAX with my boyfriend just because we had to. We watched it on its first day at Promenade Cinemas and rewatched it today the 2nd time around today. THIS IS THE ONLY MOVIE THAT I WATCHED IN A CINEMA TWICE, ganun siya kaganda for me and I just feel sad that I spent a hefty amount for a movie that I really liked but IMAX viewing quality really disappointed me.

#1 3d Glasses
These used to be hygienic. Naalala ko pa isa isa sila nakaplastic parang bagong sanitized. I had rashes on my nose bridge and forehead today because of the dirty glasses. Ang dumi!

#2 Bad Ventilation
Imax AC used to be good! Grabe today halos pawisan ako sa init ng aircon. Sobrang moist sa cinema hindi kami makahinga and I almost took out my fan para may magcirculate na hangin. Jam-packed na nga yung room sira pa yung aircon.

#3 Bed Bugs and Mosquitoes
Pinapak ng lamok yung legs ko. The seats are so dirty I had rashes and it felt like bed bugs were crawling on my legs giving me red bumps all over. Pati ba naman to?

I just had the most uncomfortable and annoying viewing experience in IMAX SM MOA and I WILL DEFINITELY NEVER EVER COME BACK. 128545

Ps. This is not a hate post but to parents with new born babies (yung kanina parang 10months old palang) please don't bring your new borns in the cinema. Courtesy na rin sa other viewers. Their baby kept crying while the intense scenes were happening and all they did was to say 'shshshsh' sa newborn baby as if naman tatahan yung baby eh ang alam lang naman niya umiyak 128546 Halos kalahati ng movie may batang umiiyak. A lot of viewers were annoyed and wala kaming magawa.

📽️ Anyway 10/10 for Infinity War. So far the best Marvel Movie I've seen. Sobrang busog. Walang pahinga. Sulit na sulit.
Thanks to my boyfriend dahil may libreng kwento before the movie. Nagback track kami sa mga previous films and may Q&A portion pa sa mga Gem Color and Power. Hahahaha!

Of course Avengers : Infinity War needs to be seen in IMAX. Yes, this is a review on the theatre and not on the movie. No spoilers! 🤗

The overall experience was superb if you talk about the visual, sounds and even the seats. One thing that went wrong for the experience was very little AC, to almost parang wala! I can even hear the person on my back to say "Nag bayad ako ng P450 tapos walang aircon?!". On the onset you would know that something is wrong kasi may higanteng fan sa likod! At some point, kinailangan ko maglabas ng pamaypay! Tsk! Tsk!

But yes, the movie is sooo good! Not really a Marvel fanatic but have watched all their movies so saktong preparation for Infinity War!! 128521128523 Again, hindi ako avid fan 9996

First time at IMAX Moa and watched DOCTOR STRANGE on its first night. Omygod, it's visually stunning, whether you are a Marvel fan or not, you just have to watch it in 3D!

Things I liked about this Cinema:
✔️ Clean
✔️ Very Spacious Lounge Area
✔️ Tickets can be booked online without an additional charge
✔️ Huge 3D Glasses and looks sanitized (Didn't have any funky smell)

One movie costs around P450 which I find so sulit especially if the movie you're watching is shot in 3D.
I just can explain how thankful I am making the right decision to watch Doctor Strange in 3D with all the magical powers and fantastic tricks it's definitely best to watch it here!

So far, it is still the best and true IMAX Theater in the Philippines. All the movies I watch here are in analogue 70mm/15perf film. The last one I watched here was Interstellar.

I remember when it first opened, we were the first ones to try it. It's part of our Field Trip. Hahahaha. The seats were sp fresh and brand new, so is the glasses. The sound was good and so is the movie. I can't remember the title bit it's an under the sea kind of film. It was so awesome.

The first time IMAX opened in MoA everyone wants to try it and see the biggest screen with high definition. You'll feel like a small creature inside the theater and it is really fun to watch in IMAX, what made this review a 3 star is that upon entering the cinema you can somehow smell the CR, not sure if it's the comfort room pero yun may mabahong amoy, and if you get the best seats in the middle it is difficult to go to the comfort room because of the number of seats that you need to pass by before you get to the isle, plus it's a little expensive.

The first ever IMAX theater in the country.

They were able to maintain the good quality of their Cinema and one of the biggest in Asia. Comfortable seats, great sound system and exceptional entertainment 127775127775127775127775

It's my first time to watch a movie here at iMax, MOA. Yey! Haha My friend insisted on watching Interstellar coz iMax MOA brings back it's 70mm projection system for the said movie. Christopher Nolan, the director of the movie, used an iMax film cameras on some portions of the movie to capture the crispness and clarity of the image and gives the audience a truly cinematic and enhanced experience.

Since it was my first time, I was really excited to watch it on 3D. I was kinda disappointed that we were not handed a 3D glasses and will be just watching it on 2D instead. But I was wrong, the movie experienced was really great. The movie maximized the whole screen of the iMax and still have a good picture. 128077128077128077

Those random moments you just want to be alone with some strangers and care less about how your day transpired.

So the best thing to do? Catch a movie alone!

I was torn between Catching Fire and Frozen but having read The Hunger Games series, I thought I have an obligation to watch the movie series, too.

Right after patiently waiting for my turn, luckily, I had reserved my seat and we were allowed to enter the cinema few minutes before the scheduled time. I had time to sit down, relax and let myself drown to a moment of nostalgia. There's something about dim lights. 128542

My thoughts were interrupted when movie goers came in. I was sandwiched by couples/lovers left and right. Oh! That's what I get from being alone. Lol.

Like any other SM Cinemas, I had also prepared myself for the not-so behaved crowd. Opinions, repititions and some minions. You wished for it, right, Bernadette?!

Nevertheless, I enjoyed the movie and the night I had a date with myself. In the first place, I wished for that crowd. Lol

This Cinema boasts one of the biggest screen if not the biggest of its kind in the country. The picture quality is good but they use the old 3D Glasses which makes the moving picture blurred at some points. Definitely a must try for an experience you can share with friends and family

I saw Man of Steel here for the second time, this time I'm with present colleagues. I originally wanted to watch Man of Steel on IMAX 3D but my friends don't have enough budget for it. So I watched it again when colleagues asked if I want to join them.

Compared to GB3 Cinemas and Eastwood Citywalk, the ratio of ads and trailers here is in between the two mentioned cinema houses. I just love watching trailers here, especially CG movies, since they're in 3D!

I just don't like the fit of their 3D glasses here though compared in Greenhills Promenade Cinemas.

We didnt have to worry about seats bcuz we bought online which is prolly the only plus to SM Cinemas. The waiting area, concession and bathrooms are horribly placed. Service at the snack bar was horrible and they tried to add extra charges to what we ordered.

Luckily the movie was great, Man Of Steel. Would have been nice if the aircon worked properly. Was to warm making it harder to enjoy.

Watched Iron Man 3! Place was jam packed by the time we got there but we didn't have to fall in line for so long.

The letdown: food took so long we were about 20 minutes into the movie before our food got there. Poor little cousins of mine who were thirsty, poor employees who suffered my wrath because of the delay.

They should improve their service and upgrade their 3D glasses. They're a bit old school considering they were the same ones being used way back when I first watched here about six years ago.

But Robert Downey Jr. is such a sexy beast. Just saying.
