July 8, 2017. Aboitiz hosted a block screening of Spider-Man: Homecoming at the Century City Mall, Makati, where Spider-Man himself graced the event.
A photo booth was set up for those awaiting entrance into the cinema. The wait was a show in itself, as the friendly neighborhood spider-man gamely posed for and with his fans (and enemies).
He certainly made this boy’s day. The kid was grinning from ear to ear while wrapped up in his hero’s arms. Spidey can definitely double as a babysitter.
Aboitiz fueled moviegoers with popcorn, hotdogs, and drinks from Taters. This was enough to keep our tummies quiet during the little-over-2-hour feature. A trivia game was also held before the start of the show.
The Marvel movie itself was light and fun. The endearing protagonist (played by Tom Holland) and his funny best friend, Ned (the perfect role for Jacob Batalon), kept us laughing until the inevitable showdown between the spider and the Vulture (Michael Keaton). It wasn’t too heavy on the love story either, which was a welcome treat. Be sure to stay for the teaser at the end of the credits.
As a parting gift, Aboitiz gave its guests Spidey cupcakes. And they have a present for the Filipino community as well.
