We watched the movie Troll here. The movie house's audio is great. There is an ample space infront of your seat that you wouldn't feel cramped and restricted.

Make sure though in choosing your seat, just do not pick the first three rows. These are too near to the screen.

I don't know for what reason we had to buy vip, last full show tickets. The most pricey movie tickets so far.

It was jam-packed! The lines were long. Super! I think it's because there were just two cashiers that accommodated us. We weren't decided yet what to watch when were lined up to claim the tickets. Confused whether to buy a regular ticket different from the vip ticket 'coz we're afraid we might get the last full show and thinking buying the vip tickets were not sulit. 128529

At last! We got yey! Vip tickets. I'm excited too 'coz I've been hearing good reviews, blogs regarding the movie house. And it's new. First dibs. Hehe. We waited until we can get in. Well what do we have here. No dismay! Worth every cent you pay. Servers palang, winner na. Parang aattend ng starmagic ball. Hahaha! Kidding aside. The place was just the right temperature. Big screen. Eye level every seat from the nearest up to the farthest. And the unlimited snacks. Popcorn with different flavors were ready. Take note they're not chewy. It's fresh. Even the drinks were unlimited. You can choose from bottled soft drinks and water. It's spacious. Plus the reclining seats were great! You could sleep. 128514 cuddle maybe? lol.

Well I found my new favorite hang out. 128077🏻 A two thumbs up! Highly recommended.

We were suppose to watch Train to Busan but it was sold out luckily there was a 1am showing at this mall and we were able to buy tickets just in time. The cinema was still packed for LFS.

Seats were comfortable but I'm not sure but it was warm at that time. Probably they lowered the AC since it was the LFS but it made our viewing experience uncomfortable.

They were selling 3 popcorn flavors: cheese, bbq and sour cream, for 85PHp. Then plain for 75PHp.

Opted to watch "Train in Busan" here since tickets at Central Square Cinemas is already sold out. The cinema is located at the 3rd floor. Most of the stores in this floor are not yet open but there are a few restaurants already wherein you can buy food and the foodcourt is just one floor away.

Cinema seats are a little bit stiff and too straight up from the back up to my head. We were seated 3 rows from the front and since there was not much space from the first row and the screen, it would feel like you are too close to what you are watching. I had to adjust for quite a while before I get to enjoy what I was watching. Video and sound quality are good.

My cousin and I went to the mall to check the place out. Since there aren't really anything much to do in the mall, because not a lot of stores are open yet. So there are only 2 things left to do, which is to watch a movie or eat. We did both though haha.

Anyway, my cousin wanted to watch a movie "The secret life of pets" . We're both dog lovers and we find the trailer quite cute, so we agreed to watch it at the VIP cinema. I mean who could resist a good lazyboy, unlimited popcorns and drinks right?! Anyway, what we love about our experience here is that the guy serving us was really attentive. He was also very pleasant and accommodating. Me and my cousin actually was able to finish at least 2 bags of popcorn each. We also had a bottle of coke and water on the side. A small lamp too on the side if you need it to help you see inside. The chair we were sitting on was really comfy too, you can control it to go up and down by the feet and also the one for your back and head. However, i'm not that quite fond of the popcorn flavor, i mean i've been to different cinemas that was able to serve better tasting popcorns. I'd actually prefer the once in Shang Mall, Promenade or Rockwell.

Anyway, our experience could have been perfect if only the popcorn could have tasted better. But overall, it was still worth our 500 plus tickets each.

BGC Uptown provides more game to the (prior) limited options for premium movie theaters. I've already tried SM Aura's and Ayala's Central Square, to mixed (SM service Director's Club) and positive reviews. I'm just bummed that, on a personal note, Megaworld also doesn't use my personal favorite Taters as its snack concessionaire.

Anyway, I've watched two movies here... X-Men Apocalypse in their VIP cinema, and Finding Dory in their regular cinema. For the former, I paid over P500 for the experience, but with the Finding Dory, it's P320 with one free popcorn worth P50.

My experience with the VIP Cinema was very very good. At P500 or P550 (sorry I forget the amount), I got unli popcorn and drink choices like softdrinks and water plus plush brownish leather seats with electronic and easy to find (unlike SM's which can be a pain and leaving one with a feeling of stupidity 128547), the staff were very attentive, quick to respond even during the movie. The popcorn is just good at best. None of the flavors were outstanding, just two flavors (butter and cheese) were decent. Bitin sour cream flavor and the bbq wasn't good. That and the need to add the popcorn to the regular ticket price as a mandate was a turn off to me. Now if the popcorn was Taters or ka level na quality, iba usapan na. 5 stars na yan!

Sound was outstanding, distance between chairs for both theaters were excellent. I'm 6'0 so perfect for me. The incline, too, perfect, so it doesn't bother people when others stand up (think Podium which is the exact opposite of perfect).

Thanks to Mary Love S for the info about buying online through blockbusterseats.com! Worked for Finding Dory.

For almost 500pesos u get to relax while watching your favorite movie in a LazyBoy. U would want to sleep rather than watch the movie because ur seat is so cozy. With state of the art "ring a waiter" so you can get a smorgasbord of popcorn, water and soda lol 128526.

Yey! I finally got to try the VIP Cinema of Uptown Mall! This is without a doubt the best cinema with lazy boy seats I have tried in the metro in years! It was nice because this cinema is actually wonderful for movie dates!

Compared to the others, the whole look of this is so amazing. My boyfriend and I saw the new installment of the X-Men men series. We booked our ticket early in the afternoon for the last full show but seats were limited then. Their online reservation system had limited dates so we had to walk in for ours. We got still good seats on the side.

The seats are set-up in pairs and the tables for the unlimited popcorn and drinks were on the outer sides of the seats. The armrest between the 2 seats can be lifted which was awesome! Love seats!

The unlimited popcorn is served in bags and you can just ask as much as you want, and you can even take home the excess. The unlimited pop were also served in bottles, so you an ask as much as you want and you are also able to take it home. I kept their bottled water because it looks so cool for me too!

The controls of the lazy boy chair were so dope! There was a good 2 minutes I was just playing with my chair.

I can't wait to come back! 128525

It has been quite a long while since R and I had a usual movie date. We normally just watch movies at home while munching on microwave popcorn. But as a Marvel fan, I could not wait several months to watch X-Men on a tiny screen. I have to watch it on big screen and top class sound surround! And it was perfect timing when R’s dad suddenly craved for ramen. We recommended Ippudo in Uptown Mall (I’ll write about this soon) and headed straight to the cinema right after our filling lunch.

We felt the crazy cold full blast air conditioning when we stepped inside the new mall. It was even colder in the ticketing area.

There was a short queue when we got there but there were still several seats left. We got seats for the one showing in half an hour. We paid PHP320/ticket which also includes a bag of popcorn. (We wanted the one without popcorn which costs PHP270 but we had to wait for an hour.)

When it was finally time for us to enter, the movie goers patiently lined up to get inside the cinema. Popcorn bags were distributed upon entering and we were given the option to choose among barbecue, sour cream and cheese. There was no butter that time so we just went with sour cream and cheese.

We didn’t really like the popcorn as the flavors were a bit off and not like the ones we were used to. Such a waste.

In terms of seats and space, BGC Central Mall is still better for me. The Uptown Mall cinema seats are a bit too narrow and the leg room is a bit tight especially if you have long legs. I loved that there are lighted signs for the seat numbers on the stairs.

I was pleasantly surprised though that it wasn’t that cold inside the cinema. I was glad I won’t be freezing for over two hours. Or so I thought. It became really cold after an hour or so. It was so cold that I had to use my |ooloo jacket, shawl and R to keep me warm.

I’d stick with the normal popcorn-less tickets next time and I’ll bring a blanket and hot cocoa for a cozy movie watching experience.

Went for a little chat with looloo reviewers before saying goodbye but when i stepped outside of ippudo it was raining hard, but since i havent been to uptown mall i figure it will be not a bad idea to roam around, came across cinema area and whooa xmen apocalypse is now showing and the next one is just 30 mins so why not try it out. Got a 270 per seat, the seat was abit smaller in terms of width but i had the 2 seats in the corner for myself so it was not so bad, it had back support which was good, but its 20 mins late in movietime so boo on that one.

Beware if you're gonna watch here.

We booked and paid our tickets online @ blockbusterseats.com on 5/13. 6:30 pm for 5/14 5 pm screening at the vip cinema. Pag pasok namin ng sinehan, may nakaupo na sa seats namin. Turns out, 3 kami pareho ng seat #. The 1st one booked online yesterday and yung isa, kanina lang bumili ng ticket s booth.

We missed the first 5 min of the movie dahil dito. Ang nakakainis lang, they tried to make us sit sa unahan, eh wala nga umupo din kasi napaka lapit sa screen.

Buti na lang may 2 seats available sa gitna at dun kami pinaupo, (dahil pinilit ko)

Ayaw pa sana kami paupuin dun kasi icconfirm pa daw nila kung wala talagang bumili nung seats. Wtf lang.

Nakakadisappoint. Ke bago pa naman ng sinehan.

I'm giving it 1108811088️ dahil maganda at bago ang venue. If not, negative bbigay ko sa kanila.

If only i knew it was so very cold inside this cinema I should have brought my thermal jacket 128518. The Captain America Civil War movie should not be missed. Unlimited sodas and popcorn (different flavors) and filtered water at Ultra cinema. Yey earned my movie buff badge. #20badges

They did not start on time. Megaworld management please fix this. Don't let people wait too much. As for the cinematic experience, probably the best so far. I dont want the popcorn added on my ticket rate please.

Civil war on a Friday night.

Sound system was great. Dolby atmos. Surround type and sounds. The seats were also comfortable enough.

They did not start on time!
My movie was 930 it started almost 10pm.

Nothing spectacular in the cinema free popcorn upon you visit. The theatre was dull. As in. So i did not feel cold.

Watched The Jungle Book earlier today. We're getting regular here because the cinema is cold and less crowded.

Tried the Barbecue flavored popcorn that goes together with the seat and I'd say it's better than the cheese, but not with sour cream.

TIP: Best seats in Cinema 2 are in the middle from H to L. :)

We wanted to try the Uptown Cinemas for Batman vs Superman... We were looking forward to the VIP cinema, but the seats were sold out until 1am!128517 Seems like everyone wanted to try the new theater as well, especially for a film like Dawn of Justice...

So we opted for a good screening time instead... We got really good seats, just the perfect distance from the screen... Being new, the place was really clean... The seats were very comfortable, with arm rests that can be lifted though a little bit snug in terms of leg room... The surround sound was great and the temperature during the movie was steady... They also had restrooms inside the cinema, which were again clean... It was a good movie going experience which I'm sure will get even better as soon as more stores open...

Will definitely try their VIP cinema soon!128515
