Cinema ’76 Cafe to open in Quezon City


No thanks to the ongoing pandemic, it’s been more than a year since most of us visited a movie house. Being inside a dimmed theater while on the edge of our seats as we watch a story unveil on a big screen is definitely an experience many of us are missing.

But while public gathering takes a back seat in the meantime, we’re excited about the opening of TBA Studios’ Cinema ’76 Cafe, an al fresco cozy space that will open in Anonas in Quezon City on 11th June.

It’s a movie-themed cafe, the closest we can have at the moment to experiencing the vibe of a cinema.


The cafe is adorned with posters of local films

The cafe is the best place to converse over a cup of coffee with fellow fans – from signages to comfortable couches, it easily resembles a movie house. Posters of hit local films by the studio such as Goyo, Birdshot, and Tayo sa Huling Buwan ng Taon are also plastered on a wooden divider, adding a retro, vintage flair.

They serve all things also familiar with our palates – coffees, from classics such as cappuccino (starts at P80, ~USD1.68), chocolate chip cookies (P 70, ~USD1.47 each), and chocolate frappes (starts at P150, ~USD3.14) are among the beverages and desserts we can relish with our friends at the cafe. There’s a popcorn-flavored frappe (starts at P200, ~USD4.19) as well, mixing the taste of the snack we love eating while inside a cinema into a drink. A unique combination indeed!

If you can’t make it to the cafe yet after it opens, they have lots of delivery options you can opt for instead. They are partnered with GrabFood as well as Foodpanda, and you can also directly message them via Viber.
