Disney Pixar’s Coco Sings Its Way to SM Cinemas Nationwide on November 22
Coco is an animated Disney Pixar movie perfect for kids, kids at heart and the whole family. From the creators of animated movies Finding Dory, Toy Story and Inside Out, they invite you to a musical journey on the bond of family history as Disney Pixar debuts its newest movie, “Coco” in all SM Cinema theatres beginning November 22.
The movie is a story about a 12 year old boy named Miguel Rivera who aspires to become a musician like his idol Ernesto dela Cruz, despite generations-old ban on music by his sweet great-grandmother Mama Coco and Abuelita.
Follow an ancient drama involving Miguel’s great-great grandfather, Ernesto de la Cruz, deceased music and film star who supposedly chose his career over family. On the eve of Dia de Muertos (day of the dead), Miguel breaks into de la Cruz’s mausoleum to borrow the star’s signature guitar hanging in there in order to join a music talent competition. However, instead he enters a whole new journey of a mysterious chain of events ending up in the Land of the Dead. He discovers a string of unbreakable family ties as he attempts to break the curse that turned him into a living ghost and then he meets Hector, a trickster skeletal companion in his journey as a living child in the Land of the Dead.
SM Cinema debuts Coco in branches across the nation, with SM Seaside City Cebu heralding the movie’s first appearance on the Mega Screen featuring Coco brand ambassador lnigo Pascual as the event’s special guest. Coco then tours its premiere at SM City Davao, SM Santa Rosa and SM City Baguio.
Celebrate the month of Thanksgiving by discovering the inseparable bond of family and sing along with Disney Pixar’s Coco in SM Cinema branches nationwide beginning November 22.

It is a touching movie that would tug deep into the heart of anyone belonging to a family with elderly family members and especially families who have lost their beloved elderly. Anyone who can relate to such will be surely sniffling towards the end of the movie. When we watched during the advance screening courtesy of SM City Davao at Cinema 6 last November 17, I could sense people were trying to quietly cry in their seats but I could not help but hear someone nearby was too emotional and we could hear the sniffles loud enough as the touching scene of Miguel and Mama Coco was on the screen, it made my tears flow down my eyes more and that awkward moment when you can’t find a tissue or your hanky, you just had to wipe your tears with your hand and compose yourself as you have to leave the cinema because the movie has ended.
I bet you will be singing “Remember me, though Remember me Though I have to say goodbye Remember me Don’t let it make you cry For ever if I’m far away I hold you in my heart I sing a secret song to you Each night we are apart…” as you leave the SM Davao Cinema! 🙂
Good thing I was able to catch up to the movie coming another event – the Christmas lighting ceremony in Marco Polo Davao. Thanks to Chito and Leah for the ride going to SM Davao. Thank God that traffic was not that heavy anymore en route to SM. Of course, thank you so much Ms. Apol Legario of SM Davao for inviting us! Muchas Gracias!
