For those of you who do not know about the newly improved, it is one of the oldest malls in Makati. Makati Cinema Square was owned mainly by the Rufinos. The mall first opened its doors to people in April 1982, marking its 37th year in operation this year and serves as a family place where you can shop, dine and reconnect with your loved one.

It holds its charm with its unique offerings like the gun range, an archery range, a judo dojo, restaurants and food kiosks, supermarket, hobby shops, apparel, gadgets, printing press, banks, salons, bookstore, lotto outlet, and many more. They also have a boxing ring/events space on their top floor and for the audiophiles, there’s a vinyl record shop.
