Picture this: you're looking up films to watch online, you encounter an interesting plot, and spend the next few minutes looking for a copy you can stream legally. Pinoy films — especially the old ones — are hard to come by, but some filmmakers and companies are now sharing their catalogue online. Regal Entertainment, for one, is uploading their library of films for free on their official YouTube channel until April 6.
With everyone home due to the "enhanced community quarantine," the homegrown production company is looking to keep people entertained with their lineup of movies. Their YouTube channel curates their releases based on genre and hosts new uploads every day at 5 p.m.
Here's a quick rundown of Regal Entertainment's upload schedule:
#RegallyYours | A Tribute to Strong Woman in Movies
Schedule: Every day from March 1 to 31
March is International Women's Month and this playlist serves as a catalogue of their films with strong female leads and gripping storylines about women.
