Superman returns

It was more than twenty years ago that I first encountered on the silver screen the comic book hero Superman which starred Christopher Reeves.

In 1983 Supreman the movie, hit the local box office in Dumaguete City. It was an instant hit, with Dumaguetetenos flocked to Ever theatre at the Escolta.

Now, two decades after, Supreman returns and it is now my son who is looking forward to watching it, this time at the IMAX at the newly SM Mall of Asia.

I am excited as well, as this would be the first time I would watch a movie at IMAX

I am looking forward to seeing a film with hi-tech effects, better than its earlier versions.

Last Thursday, we hoped to have watched Supreman. To our dismay, all seats have already been taken for the week.
The ticket we bought was for the Monday screening.

It was a long que at the ticket counters, as a lot of people were also buying tickets for later showings.

We contented ourselves with much of the mechandising activities outside the IMAX.

There were Supreman t-shirts, costumes, lots of memorabilia, chocolates being sold at the different kiosks just outside the moviehouse.
