‘Dear Virus, you will not kill cinemas’ is the slogan seen outside a selection of independent cinemas in London.

With the gradual shift of education and business establishments to online setup, local film cinemas across the country also find its way to catch up with the changes brought by Covid-19.

Last week, we announced the closure of our beloved local cinema known for being a home for various incredible mainstream and independent films, including exclusives, shorts, and world-class features. Despite the closure, it does not stop us from manifesting our firm commitments in advancing the Philippine film industry.  

We are MOOVing forward.

Cinema Centenario decided to extend our cinema beyond the four dark corners of our small theater. Say hello to MOOV, a streaming platform that has just recently opened its door to the online world. With the recent launch of it, we promise to all the film lovers that Cinema Centenario will continue celebrating the Filipino vision and cinematic artistry beyond its centennial year.

The streaming site currently has five short films and one documentary available to watch for FREE. Here are the movies that you can start watching this weekend:
