HOOQ Hangouts is an outdoor cinema event that we’ve been enjoying the past two months. It’s yours to enjoy, of course, if you’re a member or subscribed to Globe and Hooq. The set up in Bonifacio High Street BGC looks like this. There’s also pop corn, drinks and all the good things you enjoy at the movies….
The highlight is when a celebrity drops by to greet the fans. Because Every Breath You Take was showing, we spotted actor Piolo Pascual looking dapper in his casual clothes.
HOOQ boasts of an extensive catalog of close to 1,200 Filipino movies spanning almost five decades and over 4,000 hours of local television…an irresistible treat if you’re a Pinoy pop culture fan.
Jane Cruz-Walker, Country Manager of HOOQ Philippines, said “Pinoy films & TV shows are closest to our hearts because it tells the stories of our lives, that is why we have signed licensing deals with the top Philippine studios including ABS-CBN, Regal, Viva and GMA.”
“HOOQ’s library consists of Filipino movies from the 1980’s to the present, and local television content includes the best teleseryes, comedy and reality shows,” Walker added.
