ABS-CBN Film Restoration group and Powerplant Cinemas once again team up to bring moviegoers back in time in the special weeklong exhibition of digitally restored and remastered films in the 4th “REELive the Classics,” which formally opens this Sunday (February 18) with the red carpet premiere of 90s classic film “May Minamahal.”
Produced in 1993, the Aga Muhlach and Aiko Meledez starrer film revolves around the love story of happy-go-lucky Monica (Aiko Melendez), who grew up as the only girl in a crowd of boys, and Carlitos (Aga Muhlach), who found himself the head of the household of all girls after his father unexpectedly died.
Aside from the Joey Reyes directed film, “REELive the Classics” will also feature “Sana Maulit Muli,” “Ikaw Ay Akin,” “Karma,” “Langis at Tubig,” “Kung Mangarap Ka’t Magising,” “Moral,” and “Labs Kita Okey Ka Lang.”
“REELive the Classics” is part of ABS-CBN Film Restoration groups’s advocacy dubbed as “Sagip Pelikula,” which aims to preserve Philippine cinematic legacy by locally restoring classic Filipino films and make it available to the general public via different platforms.
Don’t miss the chance to watch these digitally restored films, head out to Powerplant Mall to watch these digitally restored and remastered films from Wednesday (February 21) to Tuesday (February 27). Tickets cost P250.00, with a discounted rate of P150.00 for students. For the full schedule, visit www.facebook.com/filmrestorationabscbn on Facebook.
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 already restored over 120 films, some of which were already screened internationally via film fests, screened locally via red carpet premieres, 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.
