Sinema calls her Cleopatra Wong

This December, Sinema will be screening 1978 Filipino action film THEY CALL HER CLEOPATRA WONG, which cast Singaporean actress Doris Young as main lead “Cleopatra Wong”.

1970s marked the popularity of Hong Kong martial arts films and artists like Bruce Lee, which spread throughout East Asia and to the Western countries.

Riding on the trend in 1978 is Filipino action film THEY CALL HER CLEOPATRA WONG, which reportedly inspired Quentin Tarantino for his action thriller “Kill Bill”.

THEY CALL HER CLEOPATRA WONG was directed by the late Filipino film producer, director and screenwriter Bobby A. Suarez. He produced several Chinese version movies and marketed the English dubbed movies internationally. Suarez was recognised for his dedication to the Philippine movie industry and has established Platinum Multimedia Entertainment to handle distribution in Manila.

Bobby Suarez passed away earlier this year and Sinema has decided to end the year by paying tribute to this legendary director.

Also as part of Sinema’s 3rd year anniversary, Sinema is launching its “four-six-eight” ticket sales in November and December. On weekdays, the 4pm shows are priced at $4, 6pm at $6 and 8pm at $8. Screening is also available on weekends for people to catch up on weekday shows.
