Around Baguio City CBD: Session Theater

Before SM and the other malls, and even before there was piracy and home theater, Session Theater (the other one was Pines Theater) was King of the cinema experience for City residents.  I watched a couple of movies here, one of which was Pretty Woman.  That was the year before the earthquake which at 7.6 on the Richter Scale damaged the place as well as the entire building.  In fact, the building’s condemned yet is still being occupied (a big question for folks at City Hall — are the engineers waiting for another quake and disaster before finally implementing building code standards?).  Regardless, this supports the imperative to bring in more investors into the City, the kind who care about place making.
