After weeks of promotion and ticket selling, the Ministry of Lectors and Commentators (MLC) joined the SJBP Community in the special block screening of the Disney live action movie, “Beauty and the Beast.” The block screening was held last March 16, 2017 at Greenhills Promenade Cinema 5.
Beauty and the Beast is one of the highly anticipated movies of 2017, which is actually a remake of the animation movie of the same title that was originally released in 1994. As such, young and old alike are all excited to catch this movie.
At 7:10 PM, ticket holders started entering the movie house, which has the full capacity of 246 seats. By God’s grace, MLC was able to sell all tickets, and it was such a delight to see a jampacked cinema full of familiar faces.
Prior the actual movie screening, current MLC President, Sis. Cionnie Sevilla gave a few words, and introduced Msgr. Nestor Cerbo for his welcome remarks. Msgr. Nestor took the opportunity to thank everyone who bought tickets and supported this fundraising project of MLC, most especially the generous donors who bought a significant number of Sponsorship Tickets costing PhP 2,000 each. He also thanked Sis. Tricci Alonzo, former MLC President who spearheaded the said fundraising, as well as Sis. Bebat Nabong and Sis. Nina Ortencio, who were the top ticket sellers.
Net proceeds of the movie screening shall go the SJBP Development 2019 fund.
MLC would also like to express their heartfelt thanks to our dear Mayor Guia Gomez, who graced the said activity with her valuable presence despite her tight schedule.
The night capped off with a smile on each one’s face, bringing home with them the lesson imparted in the movie, “We should not be deceived by appearances, for beauty is found within.”
