Newport Ultra Cinema Experience @ Resort’s World Manila
Thanks to Nuffnang and PLDT myDSL, Jessa and I were able to watch Resident Evil: Retribution movie for free! And not only that, our venue was at the Ultra Cinema which by far would be the best theatre that I have watched a movie in.
So why was it the best? Newport Ultra Cinemas have a reclining seat (lazy boy) which means a lot of space for you to wiggle around or sleep (please don’t). Think of it as the business class seats in airplanes. In the picture above, you would see that in every two seats, there’s a wall to give movie goers a certain level of privacy. It’s like watching a movie all alone (be it an advantage or disadvantage is up to you).
Aside from the cozy chairs, you would also get served with unlimited popcorn and soda. Just press a button at the wall for three seconds and someone would approach you to take your order. I wasn’t able to try this because I was full after one bag of popcorn.
In terms of the movie experience, the movie was very clear (digital copy) and the sounds were very nice. However, I believe other cinemas have already achieved that level of movie experience so it’s not really an advantage. What differentiates it from the rest would be the comfort level for you while watching the movie. In fact, I felt so comfortable that I was sad that the movie was already over and I wanted more. I guess movies such as the Titanic and Lord of the Rings would be a great fit here.
Now this is how one should watch a movie… if only it comes at a much cheaper price because a ticket costs PHP 500 each! So with that, I’d like to thank again Jessa (for making me her +1)and Nuffnang and PLDT myDSL (for hosting this contest) for the experience of watching a movie at Newport Ultra Cinema.
Till next time,
