ABS-CBN Film Restoration Project and Rockwell’s “REELive the Classics” cinema exhibition is extended for another week to give moviegoers more time to watch and enjoy classic Filipino films in full high definition format.
“’REELive the Classics’ has been well-received on its first week. It gave our moviegoers a variety of classic films they truly enjoyed. Rockwell and its patrons believe in making these films accessible to everyone that is why we decided to extend this exhibition of restored films for another week,” said Power Plant Cinema manager Meg Visco.On its second week, “REELive the Classics” features new restored titles viewers surely don’t want to miss that include “Bata Bata Paano Ka Ginawa,” “Nagsimula sa Puso,” “Pare Ko,” “Milan,” “Ganito Kami Noon, Paano Kayo Ngayon?,” and “Virgin People.”
Since 2011, ABS-CBN Film Restoration Project has been restoring classic films to help preserve Philippine cinematic history. Together with Central Digital Lab, it has become the first restoration effort to be done within the country.
To date, ABS-CBN Film Restoration Project has restored over 100 films, some of which were already screened internationally at film festivals like Venice, screened locally via red carpet premieres and limited commercial runs, aired on free-to-air and cable television, viewed via pay-per-view and video-on-demand, distributed on DVD, and downloadable even on iTunes.
