Mark your calendars, movie fans! If you’re looking for something to watch this coming April, you might want to check out the comeback of Intramuros Open Cinema.

Intramuros Administration (IA) is bringing back the Intramuros Open Cinema just in time for the summer season. In a Facebook post, IA said that the outdoor film screening is for free and it will happen on April 6 and 7 at the Puerto Real Gardens in the Walled City of Intramuros.

The two movies that will be screened for this year are documentary Honor: The Legacy of Jose Abad Santos (April 6) and the award-winning musical drama Ang Larawan (April 7).

Bani Logroño’s Honor: The Legacy of Jose Abad Santos is a full-length documentary about the life and legacy of the Filipino hero of World War II, Chief Justice Jose Abad Santos. It’s part of the 2018 Cinemalaya Film Festival.

Meanwhile, Ang Larawan is based on National Artist for Literature Nick Joaquin’s play “A Portrait of the Artist as Filipino.” The film set before World War II in Intramuros tells the dilemma of sisters Candida (Joanna Ampil) and Paula Marasigan (Rachel Alejandro), daughters of high-profile painter.

The screenings are for free, but you need to book tickets in advance to secure a seat. Check out Honor: The Legacy of Jose Abad Santos and Ang Larawan to reserve your tickets. IA also advised to arrive at least 30 minutes before a film starts and to bring mats, blankets or foldable chairs.
