This is a list of cinemas that exist or have existed in Metro Manila, Philippines.[1]


Unlike most countries, theater chains in the Philippines in general are managed solely by mall owners in their respective leisure divisions rather than being outsourced by other companies. The only exception is the Ortigas Cinemas in Estancia, where SM Prime co-manages the cinema component as the former owns a stake in developer Ortigas & Company.

Ticket prices range from around 200 pesos to as high as 700 pesos, depending on the theater location, time and date, and if premium features are available. Pricing will be higher if a blockbuster film is being shown. Most local government units in the region give free movie tickets to registered Senior Citizens and Persons with Disabilities in their locality.

Seating can be picked by the viewer through a screen, in the case of reserved seating, or if in the case of free seating, the viewer can choose a seat while inside the theater. Online booking is available in major theater chains.

During the first and last full screening, the audience must stand for the Philippine National Anthem as mandated by law.[2]
