    Cinema Guidelines You Need To Know

    Before you sit back, relax, and enjoy the show, make sure to be informed of the safety protocols still in place.

    Under the guidelines, entry to closed and crowded establishments, such as movie houses requires proof of vaccination. Minors or those aged 17 and below do not need to prove vaccination status as long as they are accompanied by fully-vaccinated adults.

    Major cinema theaters inside malls like Robinsons, SM, Ayala Malls, and Uptown allow moviegoers to bring in food and drinks.

    It's also advised to check in with the local government unit where the cinema house or theater is located for any updates on COVID-19 related restrictions.

    The Bad Guys (PG)

    Let's start with the latest movie offering. This family and kiddie movie just opened in Philippine cinemas last April 27, 2022. The latest DreamWorks Animation and Universal Pictures International movie offering features five furry friends and their adventure as they try to rewrite their identity from bad guys to good fellas.

    The Lost City (Rated PG)

    Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (Rated PG)

    Sonic once again battles the villain mad scientist Dr. Robotnik who he has faced already in the first installment of this movie adaptation of the video game. The rivalry aside, Common Sense Media says Sonic's "childish outlook and humor help make him relatable to kids."

    The plot also includes scenes where the main character "learns important social and emotional and life skills (like teamwork and personal responsibility)."

    However, be warned as the movie also includes remarks and jokes that may not be suited for young audiences.
