The pioneer in cinema digitization in the Philippines, SM Cinema has now re-opened its doors to moviegoers with 35 cinemas nationwide for exclusive screenings and safe and fun movie experiences in partnership with Hygiea.
Hygiea Innovations and Technology, Inc. is the largest pioneer in implementing the use of technology to eliminate harmful bacteria and viruses in every business and personal space and install MERV filters and air purifiers in the theaters. Hygiea offers the world’s first silver-ion infused air-handling unit (AHU) filters.
As one of the first establishments to acquire a Safety Seal certification from the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), SM remains committed to the safety and well-being of mallgoers. All SM Cinema branches have also been awarded the Safety Seal certification.
You can now sit back and enjoy the big screen experience at SM Cinema without worry as the cinemas are now equipped with the Aurabeat Air Purifiers, which eliminate 99.9% of the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19 — in just 15 minutes. The purifier uses silver-ion technology and five-stage disinfection to help dismantle the viruses and filter the air.
Aside from these safety measures, before you head off to see must-watch movies with your family and friends at SM Cinema, make sure to wear a well-fitted mask, follow the seat gap policy and one-way traffic flow, and present the health declaration form upon entry. Bringing of food and drinks is also temporarily prohibited inside the theaters.
