Cinema One Launches New Outdoor Screening Event last May 1, Labor Day.
In partnership with Nuvali Night Sky Cinema, Cinema One, the home of the biggest blockbuster movies launches its newest outdoor screening event featuring Cinema One Originals “That Thing Called Tadhana,” “Shift,” and John Carney’s “Begin Again” at The Fields, Nuvali on Labor day (May 1).
The Labor day event been split into two celebrations with music filling the air by day, and movies screening all night long. Hosted by John Lapus, “Open Air Cinema One” showcases three feel good films starting with the award winning Yeng Constantino and Felix Roco helmed film “Shift” at 5:30PM followed by Keira Knightley-Mark Ruffalo starrer, "Begin Again”, and for the last show of the night, the highest local grossing indie film, “That Thing Called Tadhana” shown at 10:30 PM.
“Shift” is a 2013 Cinema One Originals entry by Siege Ledesma that follows the story of Estela (Yeng Constantino), a call center agent who is struggling to have a sense of direction in life. She meets and befriends co-worker Trevor (Felix Roco), a supposed homosexual and manages to create a charming connection with him. As Estela and Trevor’s friendship blossoms, complications arise.
Meanwhile, “That Thing Called Tadhana” by Antoinette Jadaone chronicles the story of two Filipino strangers, Mace (Angelica Panganiban) and Anthony (JM de Guzman) who bump into each other at Rome’s airport. At the check-in counter, a struggling Mace who made countless attempts to pass baggage load requirements was saved with the help of Anthony. After landing in Manila, the two eventually decide to travel together up north to Baguio and Sagada in the quest to search for the answer to the question, “where do broken hearts go?”
The international box office hit, “Begin Again” directed by John Carney is anchored on music against the backdrop of the musically cultured city of New York. Keira Knightley portrays singer-songwriter Gretta who recently called it quits with her boyfriend, musician Dave Kohl (Adam Levine). Gretta is then discovered by record label executive Dan (Mark Ruffalo) at a bar wherein Gretta was forced to play on stage by a friend. Amazed with Gretta’s talent, Dan offers to produce Gretta’s music to make her as one of the talents in his company. In an effort to create a demo that will persuade Dan’s business partner to sign Gretta, the two begin recording Gretta’s music in various locations around New York City.
Music fans also rejoiced as The Fields, Nuvali converts into a music haven as Up Dharma Down, Moonstar88, Ransom Collective, Jason Dy, and Kai Honassan performed their best hits in between the films with other surprise guests.
Summer vibes are all around the whole day at “Open Air Cinema One” as various trampolines, inflatables, and food trucks conquer Nuvali. There were also kite flying activity that completes the Labor day family getaway.
