If you’re around for a great but affordable movie-watching experience, don’t pass up on Cine Lokal’s July offerings, as listed in this post.

To those uninitiated, Cine Lokal is the brainchild initiative of FDCP and SM Cinemas which hosts screenings of local films across major SM cinemas. This is done as a way of highlighting Filipino films that general audiences might have missed. Admission also comes at an affordable price—each ticket costs 120 pesos!—which makes it an appealing buy for everyone.

Here are the four films you can watch this month.

Sa Aking Mga Kamay (remastered)

Director: Rory B. Quintos
Screening Dates: June 30 – July 6

Pamilya Ordinaryo

Director: Eduardo Roy, Jr.
Screening Dates: July 7 – 13

The Janitor

Director: Michael Tuviera
Screening Dates: July 14 – 20


Director: Sigfried Barros Sanchez
Screening Dates: July 21 – 27

If you’re only watching one film (again, for only 120 pesos!) this month, make it Eduardo Roy Jr.’s Pamilya Ordinaryo, a sobering look at our poverty and our gaping insensitivity towards it. Come into the remastered release of Rory B. Quintos’ Sa Aking Mga Kamay, where Aga Muhlach shreds off the heartthrob skin to play the role of a serial killer. The other two films I say come in with caution.

The films screen on the following times: 1:00 p.m., 3:30p.m., 6:00 p.m., and 8:30 p.m. The films screen on the following SM Cinema branches: SM Megamall, SM North EDSA, SM Fairview, SM Iloilo, SM Southmall, SM Cebu, SM Bacoor, and SM Mall Of Asia.
