Best Cinema Seats in Metro Manila Cinemas

My list of best cinema seats is not exhaustive and will be constantly updated. But in the meantime, I'd like to share with you what I have gathered so far.  

We do not watch movies in cinemas often but when we do I prefer to get advanced tickets and have the choice of best seats that I can reserve in advance. So, I usually choose the cinemas that allow me to buy tickets in advance and choose my seats, all preferably done online. So far, the cinemas that allow me to do the same are SM cinemas (www.smcinema.com) or Ayala cinemas (www.sureseats.com). 

After a movie, my kids give me feedback on their viewing experience with my choice of seats so this list resulted from that feedback. Simply said, these are the seats our family likes.


SM CINEMA

SM NORTH EDSA IMAX: ROW P (Seat 13-22)

As a rule, I usually choose the 2nd to the last row in Imax theaters, because of the size of the screen. So this choice also applies to other Imax theaters. As you may notice, there are green-shaded photos below. Those are house seats that you cannot book online. From my experience, I found that rows near (meaning above or below) the house seats are seats with the best viewing experience. Of course, always choose the middle.






SM MARIKINA CINEMA 1: ROW P (Seats 7-16)

The first time we watched at this cinema, I chose Row J, thinking it's a good middle row. Since the cinema is small, Row J turned out to be very near the screen. We had a difficult time watching the movie so the next time we watched, we chose a farther row. Row P turned out to be the best choice. As you may notice, it's again the row above the house seats, which the cinema management considers the best seats in the house. Of course, if you can get the house seats, then so much the better.
