Announcement from Cloud Philippines
I know you're all waiting for this. We promised to give you something BIG and EXCITING, so here goes...
First off: the BIG news is...
SPEED RACER IS COMING OUT IN THE PHILIPPINES ON MAY 7, 2008.
Yup, you read that right! The Philippines will experience Speed Racer a full THREE DAYS ahead of the US of A! (that's counting the time difference )
And since you asked for it, we're gonna give it to you. Cloud Philippines is holding a special GROUP SCREENING exclusively for all Rain fans in the Philippines!
Here are the details:
1. The Premiere Theater at Shangri-La Cineplex houses 88 pax limited seating capacity. In case our confirmed attendees exceed 88 persons, we can still change the venue to Greenbelt 3 Cinemas which can house 160 persons. But we need a confirmed total number of attendees first before we make this step.
We need the participants' confirmation ahead of time and on FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED basis. This is also to facilitate preparation of our gifts and giveaways.
We shall appreciate confirmation of attendance as early as NOW.
2. Payment for the ticket is also required in advance. We shall be providing everyone the payment details later.
3. As per Shangrila Cineplex' rules, we are required to be at the cinema ON TIME. As of now, we don't know the exact screening time of the movie since it's still in post-production phase and all... The time on the invite is the preferred screening time we selected.
We should also abide by the Cineplex's house rules, ie., no bringing of food and beverages except from those purchased from their snack bar.
4. We are also considering having a small CloudPH get-together 2-3 hours before the screening. Currently, there are no available restaurants/fastfood chains at Shangri-la which can accomodate functions aside from Cravings which can only house a maximum of 40 persons. If you would like us to have a small gathering before the event, please let us know by posting a reply at this thread expressing your intention to join. An additional fee for the food will be asked of you should the mini-gathering pushes through. Of course, a mini-gathering would mean additional treats for the attendees. The estimated total fee for this would be P500.00 (P250.00 for the screening and P250.00 for the mini-gathering).
Please take note that we will only push through with the mini-gathering if we have reached a total number of 30 CONFIRMED and PAID attendees. So please do state your intention to join as early as NOW so that we'll have ample time to prepare.
Cloud Philippines is currently coordinating with Warner Bros. Pictures for possible promotional tie-ups and activities where the Club may participate.
FINAL NOTE: As we are not holding our event on the first day of showing in consideration of those who cannot make it on weekdays, it doesn't mean we are stopping you from watching Speed Racer before our event. In fact, the more times you watch, the better. Just follow the Vilmanian principle: pay, watch, get out of the theater, pay again, watch again, get out again... (repeat to infinity)
We anticipate everyone's participation in this momentous event.
PH CLOUDS SUPPORT RAIN!
