Quote:

Special theaters for such films in Manila are now landmarks of our memories – there our tiny cabal of cineastes bonded in delight and puzzlement over worlds that could not be more different from ours yet seemed so intimate. We never hesitated from braving a rainy night to catch such films in the movie house called Mayfair in Quiapo, or beat classes for a retrospective of the awesome Akira Kurosawa in a small movie house (“Society,” if memory serves) on present-day M.
