We don’t know about you, but one of the things we miss most about pre-pandemic times is going to the cinema. (The indoor type, not the outdoor drive-in ones). After over a year into community quarantine, we can barely remember what it’s like to step inside a movie theatre with our fave cinema snacks in hand and enjoy the big screen experience.
Fortunately for those living in the metro, production powerhouse TBA Studios is offering an amazing alternative: Cinema 76 Cafe. This upcoming al fresco coffee shop is located at the third floor of Anonas LRT City Center, Aurora Boulevard, Quezon City. It will be opening on 11 Jun 2021.
What to expect from Cinema 76 Cafe
As the name suggests, this neighbourhood cafe is meant to be a cosy hideout for both film fanatics and coffee lovers. There, you can bask in the al fresco setting paired with the unique movie-themed decor. The walls showcase posters of popular TBA Studios film, while the plush “bench seating” is a nod to the signature couches at Cinema ’76 Film Society theatre in San Juan.
Of course, the Cinema 76 Cafe menu is also something to look forward to. It boasts a yummy selection of desserts, pastries, and drinks. We can’t wait to try their Popcorn Frappe, Chocolate Chip Banana Loaf, and Mango Cake! Fun fact: The latter is inspired by an iconic scene from the 2018 blockbuster, Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral.
For a surely safe lounging experience, Cinema 76 Cafe uses an air sterilising and disinfecting machine all throughout the day. Their furniture, fixtures, and surfaces are also disinfected after every use.
Bringing the movie-themed cafe experience at home
Not feeling like going outside your house, but still curious to see what the hype is about? Good news: Cinema 76 Cafe will be available via FoodPanda and GrabFood soon. You can also order directly via their Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or through phone or Viber. Another alternative would be curbside pickup and takeout; just make sure to place your order in advance!
