The country’s entertainment scene gets another boost with the rise of the Araneta Group’s New Frontier Theater, now known as Kia Theatre.
The theater seats 2,385 and is equipped with state-of-the-art audio, visual and lighting technologies.
Kia Theatre is set to be a leading performing arts venue in the country.
This early, in fact, the theatre is already booked for a formidable line-up of shows, the first being the highly anticipated Disney Live! Mickey’s Music Festival. Running from Sept.1 to 6, the touring show will feature Mickey as well as other famous characters from Disney movies Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, and Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story.
While retaining the classic-looking shell of the iconic New Frontier Theater, the new structure comes in a contemporary, world-class design. It comes with an elegant drop-off point, which leads to a grand lobby. Here, guests and stars can climb the posh staircase to a swanky Theatre Lounge in the mezzanine, ideal for meet-and-greet sessions as well as press briefings.
The theatre’s façade will also feature Kia Motors’ logo and a 305.96 square-meter Kia showroom, following a multi-year agreement with Columbian Autocar Corporation (CAC), the assembler and exclusive distributor of Kia Motors vehicles in the Philippines.
Finally, an array of cafes, restaurants, and retail shops will be found along the theatre’s perimeter, making the area a promising dining and leisure district especially for residents of the metro’s North.
