    Can I reserve tickets to Sayaw ng Dalawang Paa” (Dance of Two Feet) for 5 pm showing today?

    What is the actual street address, etc of UP’s Film Center?

    Hi, George, I don’t think they will run out of tickets! The UP Film Center is on the UP campus in Diliman. It’s a fairly well known building. Just head to UP. When you’ve arrived on the campus, look for a person who looks like a student (they should be everywhere – !). Tell them you’re looking for the film center. I am 90% sure a student will be able to direct you (Better ask a student, not a security guard. Just my two cents!)

    (I’m in Redwood City, California! I am with you in spirit)
