November 2014 Local Movie Guide

We know how hard it is to jumble schedules and catch the films with limited screening. At times, even figuring out the easiest routes between cinemas scattered from North to South (“How do I get to UP in less than 2 hours if I come from Taguig during rush hour?”) and not getting sandwiched in between a traffic, are exhausting already. But what gives, this is all for Philippine cinema, right?

So to help you plot your schedule for the coming days, here’s a guide for the month of November.
