Find ‘Dory’ at SM Cinemas

SM Cinema, a brand under SM Lifestyle Entertainment Inc and Disney is working to bring back to Filipino families the habit of watching movies together. SM Cinema and Disney joined forces to create an unforgettable experience with Disney·Pixar’s “Finding Dory” installation. SM Cinema invites you to find Dory through interactive exhibits at Mall of Asia this June. The friendly but forgetful fish discovers her way to IMAX theatres and SM Cinema branches nationwide beginning June 16.

SM Cinema joins the funny and loveable but forgetful blue fish named Dory as she embarks on another big adventure in Disney-Pixar’s “Finding Dory,” the eagerly awaited sequel to “Finding Nemo.”

In anticipation of the year’s most heart-warming animation, SM Cinema invites families to just keep swimming at the Mall of Asia. With activities distributed in the mall, finding the amnesiac blue tang fish has never been this fun! At the MOA activity center, a Dory-themed exhibit features games such as the Water Tank Escape: help Dory escape from the Marine Life Institute’s water tank by finding her in a wind tunnel filled with different fish! Bring Dory home through the buzz wire game where players are tasked to go through an electric maze taking Dory from the far flung ends of the sea to her family. Help her remember her past: At the Exploreum, patrons are invited to a magnified memory game. Take a selfie with Dory at IMAX! Find the well-travelled blue fish at IMAX lobbies and post a selfie for a chance to win premium items from Disney.

Spend a day with your family at SM Cinema, as Dory sets out to find hers. Visit Disney·Pixar’s “Finding Dory” at Mall of Asia and in IMAX theatres nationwide from June 10 to June 22. Catch Disney·Pixar’s “Finding Dory” on June 16 at IMAX, Director’s Club Cinema, and SM Cinema theatres across the country.

About “Finding Dory”

Disney·Pixar’s welcomes back to the big screen everyone’s favourite forgetful blue tang Dory (voice of Ellen DeGeneres), who’s living happily in the reef with Marlin (voice of Albert Brooks) and Nemo (voice of Hayden Rolence). When Dory suddenly remembers that she has a family out there who may be looking for her, the trio take off on a life-changing adventure across the ocean to California’s prestigious Marin Life Institute, a rehabilitation center and aquarium. In an effort to find her mom (voice of Diane Keaton) and dad (voice of Eugene Levy), Dory enlists the help of three of the MLI’s most intriguing residents: Hank (voice of Ed O’Neill), a cantankerous octopus who frequently gives employees the slip; Bailey (voice of Ty Burrell), a beluga whale who is convinced his biological sonar skills are on the fritz; and Destiny (voice of Kaitlin Olson), a nearsighted whale shark. Deftly navigating the complex inner workings of the MLI, Dory and her friends discover the magic within their flaws, friendships and family.

Directed by Andrew Stanton (“Finding Nemo,” “WALL·E”), co-directed by Angus MacLane (“Toy Story OFTERROR!”), and produced by Lindsey Collins (co-producer “WALL·E”), Disney·Pixar’s “Finding Dory” swims into Philippine theatres June 16, 2016.

Grand Launching of the Bellevue Kids Club

Last Sunday, my daughter and I went to Bellevue Manila for the Bellevue Kids Club launching.

The event showcased just how beautiful our culture is with its Filipiniana theme. Colorful buntings accented with bamboo and sombrero hat displays channelled the Filipino Fiesta set up. Kids and parents were entertained by Indak Lahi's rendition of popular Philippine folk dances from the different regions. They did the Banga (pot dance) which I really loved. I watched how the heavy earthen pots, filed up as many as four or five, are balanced on the heads of maidens as they trudge to the beat. The banga balancing act alone was amazing.

Museo Pambata held a shadow play for kids and the young at heart. The show is based on how Magellan came to conquer the Philippines after acquiring Enrique in a slave barter.

They were games and raffle draws in between activities. The adults had a blast with Limbo Rock. All pass beneath the bamboo pole being held up by two people while leaning backwards. The pole is lowered a few inches after each successful round and those who touch the ground with a body part other than their feet were eliminated. This game of elimination went on until few participants remained and declared as winners.

Each kid was given an activity passport to complete which in turn will be exchanged for a goodie bag of treats at the end of the program. Faber Castell had coloring craft activity set up for kids.

Toddlers and preschoolers had their face painted on on of the booths. The Belo Baby booth gave out soaps and colognes.

The play area and the candy/chocolate/popcorn buffet on the other side of the Laguna ballroom was popular among the young children as well.

Bellevue Manila had sorbetes, putong puti, turong halo-halo, biko and gulaman in the traditional Pinoy festive style.

Bellevue Manila will be holding its Bellevue Kids Club every Sunday during lunch. Kids can join in the playroom and participate in alternative learning experiences with their parents.

The BKC initiative is part of the Bellevue group of hotels to provide wholesome activities for young families to create meaningful memories.

If you have kids aged 12 years old and below, you can sign up here to receive Bellevue Kid's Club updates.
