CBRC Dream Theater is a fully air-conditioned, 200-250-seater cinema, with a 4k projection unit, and 5.1 Surround Sound Stereo. The microcinema sells tickets for the price of 150 pesos each only.

Over the weekend, CBRC Dream Theater opened its door to audiences with Loy Arcenas’ musical blockbuster “Ang Larawan.” Topbilled by Joanna Ampil, Rachel Alejandro and Paulo Avelino with a talented ensemble of actors from both film and the theater, the movie is a thought-provoking crowd-pleaser that won several awards at the recent Metro Manila Film Festival and received multiple nominations in different award-giving bodies.

The aim of Carl E. Balita, President/CEO, an educator and film/art enthusiast, is to not only provide a venue for filmmakers to showcase their works but also to support theater artists thus extending CBRC Dream Theater for rehearsals and theater performances.
