The much-anticipated Power Plant Cinemas finally opened on November 10, 2021, after a year and a half of waiting. Cinemagoers got to experience Dune, a science fiction masterpiece, on the big screen.  

Members of the press and Rockwell clients were invited to the 7:30 PM screening of Dune, at the VIP Cinema 8 of Power Plant Mall. They were very excited to finally watch, after the highly awaited reopening of the cinemas. To complete the experience, they were given Power Plant Cinema popcorn as an after-movie treat. These can also be purchased at the Plaza Driveway (across the mall entrance near Zara). 

Other movie enthusiasts can also look forward to more exciting titles such as No Time To Die, Marvel Studios’ Eternals, and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, to name a few. 

For customers’ peace of mind, Rockwell has taken on protocols to ensure everyone’s safety. Seating is at 40% capacity, with a 1.2-meter lateral distance between customers, and a 2.2-meter gap from those in front and at the back. Minors and only fully-vaccinated adults will be allowed to watch. Tickets can be booked online at, with contactless payment solutions being highly encouraged. Contact tracing measures are in place, and a health declaration is done through scanning the U Make Makati Safe QR code at the entrance.

To further guarantee the health and safety of customers, there’s a one-hour interval between each screening for thorough disinfection, through UV light and misting machines. Fresh air supply with an air change rate that is above the ASHRAE standards is circulated in all cinemas. Power Plant Cinema has recently been awarded a Safety Seal, certifying that the appropriate protocols are in place in preparation for the return of movie theaters.

Those who prefer a safer and more intimate viewing experience with their friends and families can privately enjoy the movies through block screenings. Cinemagoers can easily avail of this at Power Plant Mall, and also at Santolan Town Plaza, Rockwell’s retail property in San Juan.
