Granting my request, my friend accompanied me to Hollywood Cinema. It is very easy to locate the place using your sense of sight and smell. With your visual perception, you can read its name because it is just next to Hollywood restaurant and bar. With your olfactory perception, you can smell the distinctly foul odor emanating from the cinema. Perhaps, the odor is created from the mixture of molds and oldness of the place. Human bodily fluids and odor probably play a role too. The cinema is on the left side of Dilson Cinema.
When you enter the premise of the the cinema from the walkway of the people passing by, you will see the ticket booth on the left. The fee is 75 pesos as per posting date. You need to surrender the ticket to the guard who is stationed just about 10 feet away adjacent to the window. The cinema has two floors. It resembles very similar to Bravo Theater but a smaller version. The door to the big screen (orchestra) faces the main entrance uninterrupted. The only stairs to take you to the second floor is situated outside the door to the first floor. Compared to Bravo Theater, however, the stairs on the second floor to the actual entry to the balcony is very steep and poorly lit. Be extra-careful until your eyes become adapted.
When my friend and I entered the orchestra, we were welcomed by different callboys. This cinema is certified to be a house of callboys. One of the callboys asked my friend what kind of fun he was looking for exactly. I could not see their faces clearly but I surmise that some have got the looks. They don't have any hesitation to offer their service making a pimp insignificant. Their rate varies from 100 to 800 or even a thousand. Both of us were not there for sex but just to observe what it's got to offer, so we turned down the callboys. My friend put his hands on my shoulder to insinuate that we were not interested in any of them. A mature callboy, then, began teasing the two of us. He was irritating but we couldn't tell him to knock off. It was his turf. There were many people inside doing their thing although it was not so many as in Bravo and Dilson.
Meanwhile the second floor was meagerly frequented. Usually, those who go to this part of the cinema are just for the trip or unpaid sex.
