SM City General Santos, as part of their exciting opening this August 10, will be also the commencing of its 4 State of the Art Digital Cinemas that will take our movie experience to the next level. SM Cinemas will bring the up-to-the-latest movies from local and international scene up to the special screens wherein only SM Cinemas would be able to show such film on theaters to the next level!

Well, I'm still curious about the difference of an ordinary movie theater to a Digital Theater of SM Cinemas. According to an info provided by SM Cinema, here are the some features of a digital theater:
- Projector system: SM Digital Theater uses a hard drive wherein the digital copy of the movie is downloaded and is directly projected to the screen. This digital system shows crisp, clearer, and brighter, without scratches and lapses while showing the movie. It is also capable of showing 3D movies. While a 35mm cinema still uses the 35mm celluloid film which is prone to seeing scratches and lapses while viewing the movie.
- Sound: The SM Digital Theater uses the state-of-the-art Dolby Digital sound system which magnificently completes the unsurpassed total movie experience. 35 mm cinemas still uses the conventional 5.1 sound system which disperses sound through many speakers making it nearly impossible to locate the origin of the sound.
See the Trailer of The Bourne Legacy on Youtube:
Aside from Bourne Legacy (showing on August 10), there are also lots of movies to choose from, including the SM Cinexclusive The Ring 3 (or Sadako 3D in Japan released on May 2012). "SM will have exclusive rights to “Sadako The Ring 3,” which will premiere in the country on August 8" according to ABS-CBNNews.com Portal. This movie is kinda exciting also.

Aside from the nerve racking The Ring 3, SM Cinemas will also be showing the Disney Pixar's Brave (Synopsis and reviews here: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1217209/) and Step Up 4: The Revolution (Synopsis here via SM Cinemas Portal: http://bit.ly/M8NAMT)
Since I am excited with the opening, of course everyone does, I will treat myself to watch The Bourne Legacy for the first time in SM Cinemas General Santos on August 10 since they'll be giving away freebies from SM Cinemas for the first 1000 customers! And I want you to be part of that a thousand customer as SM says, "We've got it all for you!".
The other thing to watch out at SM Cinemas is that, their cinema ticket is way cheap! Cheaper than ever! Well perhaps the cheapest SM Cinemas nationwide for only P111.00! Please hit me now! :))
(Breathe easily) If you want hassle free payment for your cinema ticket, just avail their SM Cinema e-PLUS Card, most convenient to access to the movies. You have to buy their 500 and 1000 load denomination prepaid card and you will enjoy watching movies without any hassle filing the lines up! Plus you will get free snacks every time you load up your card! Pretty convenient for those movie hoppers like me!
SM Cinemas are also innovated the way people will experience comfort in lines. Turnstile Access System is the one. This will going to be the first Turnstile System in General Santos wherein it allows one pass at a time. Just use your SM Cinema Cineaccess card to gain access to your next movie.

Lastly, as one of the things to watch out for is the Snackbar (well, as always!) wherein you can buy foods and snacks that is appropriated for your movie experience to the next level! Of course, SM Cinemas General Santos allow outside food to be brought in, well except for those sticky gravy, sauces and rice meals. GREAT NEWS!
SM will definitely change the shopping, dining and entertainment to the next level.
