Movie Stars Café brings you grand, Hollywood-scale
production numbers to remember

Everybody loves an exhilarating performance. That is something that we believe in and with
this in mind, being the newest and classiest gallery café in Manila, we decided to stage
snippets of productions based on some of the most beloved Hollywood productions like the
tragic musical “Phantom of the Opera” which has been adapted to film and the sprightly
“Grease” about two lovers in a 1950s high school.

Aside from the aforementioned, we also take pride in putting together our very own version ofthe Disney animated epic “Lion King,” and vignettes provided by such iconic movie charactersas Barbie, Spiderman, Darth Vader from “Star Wars” and Ironman.

And the even bigger treat is that you can enjoy all these fantastic production numbers withoutpaying for an admission ticket. 

You can even bring your friends and loved ones to dine and wine while watching our talented and ingenious cast and production staff weave magic on thevast stage of a one-of-a-kind dining and entertainment venue. Theater actor and director Terrence Guillermo as the Phantom and soprano Jenny Garcia ashis inamorata Christine relieve the drama, the mystery, and the heartbreak as the star-crossed lovers of “Phantom of the Opera.” It will be a thrill to hear the familiar love anthem “All I Ask of You.” 

Versatile singer Philip Deles plays Raoul while Miguel Mendoza of “Pinoy Dream

Academy Season 2” alternates with Guillermo in the coveted role of the Phantom. Hazel GraceMaranan and Marielle Mamaclay are part of the ensemble.

“Grease,” however, invites you to take a stroll down memory lane as Geoff Taylor, grand

winner of the GMA-7 singing star search “Are You The Next Big Star?” and Genesis Jane
Ryan, the talented younger sister of TV star Princess Ryan, portray Danny and Sandy which
were brought to life in the original film version by John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John,
respectively. Coming--of-age songs like “Summer Nights,” “Hopelessly Devoted to You,” and
“You’re the One That I Want” are sure to put the crowd in a nostalgic mood.

Meanwhile, in their take on “The Lion King,” you’ ll get to encounter once again the well-lovedcharacters from the Pride Lands like Simba, Mufasa, and Nala and the unforgettable movie theme “Can You Feel the Love Tonight?” Marvel at the costumes and props, some of whichwere imported from Japan and the others especially made by the townsfolk of Paete, Laguna,the wood-carving capital of the Philippines. Allan Dale Alojipan and Fil-Italian looker Ilaria Pandolfi headline the big cast.

Aside from their in-house performers, they make sure that our entire work force is a

multi-talented lot since they also double as performers and cosplayers. While diners enjoy their meals, performers garbed in well-loved superhero costumes like Spiderman, Ironman, Darth Vader from “Star Wars,” and Captain America roam the area to provide comic sketches, strike signature poses and hobnobs with the customers.

Aside from our out of the ordinary theme, our dishes & beverages are what we'll be known for. With a wide range of scrumptious array of international dishes, cooked in excellency by our hand-picked master chefs using only selected ingredients that has been shown in
or inspired by our favorite top notch movies of all time, each visit will surely give you a feel of traveling the world without having to leave your seat.
