Level Up Your Movie Experience | Ortigas Cinemas

Going out to the movies is a popular recreational activity that many of us love. It's a classic date idea for couples, friends, and families. Sure, there is always the option to stream flicks online and chill at home, but it's also nice to go out sometimes and enjoy the good old movie experience.

Join me today as I visit Ortigas Cinemas in Pasig City.

If you want to upgrade your viewing experience and don’t mind paying extra, check out Ortigas Cinemas inside Estancia in Pasig City. You can find it on the fourth level of the mall (East Wing).

Regular Cinema

Their regular cinema offers generous legroom and dark Gray seats (with cushioned headrests) that recline when you push back. Of course, they also have cup holders. The seats are so relaxing that you can enjoy a good sleep and get comfy if you don't like the movie.

The Screening Room at Ortigas Cinemas

The Screening Room is the upgraded version of their regular cinema. It has a separate entrance and waiting lounge.

What makes it different is that the seats are more comfortable (than the already comfy ones in the other theater). You can also recline the chairs and footrests individually using the built-in controllers. If you need anything, there is a call button that you can press for assistance.

Low on battery? No problem! As long as you have your cord, you can charge while watching a movie.

The Screening Room tickets come with popcorn and cold bottled water. The attendants will hand it to you as you enter.

Ticket Purchasing & Discounts

You can book online or get your tickets from the counter. Regardless, ticket purchasing is hassle-free. Note: Senior Citizen and PWD cards are only honored when you get your passes from the ticket counter (they are not valid when you book online as they need to see the IDs for verification purposes, so don't forget!).

  • It’s very cold inside both cinemas, be sure to bring your jacket (or even socks);

  • The Screening Room has restrooms inside the theater;

  • The regular cinemas don't have restrooms, but you can use the ones inside the mall (it's on the same floor). Estancia has clean, spacious, and fragrant toilets that are well-equipped.
