Random things I love about summer: the beach, sundresses, homemade ice candies, impromptu picnics, summer songs, clear skies and sunshine, big floppy hats, festivals, vibrant-colored clothes, cold melon, epic road trips, night swimming and the highly anticipated summer Hollywood movies!
No, this isn't a review on the latest blockbuster film but rather an experience worth sharing to my fellow movie buffs and Sci-Fi fanatics out there!
The moment you step inside, you'll feel that this is not your ordinary restaurant.
Star Movies Cafe is the newest (and only) movie-themed cafe this side of the world and is currently located in the San Mig by the Bay of the Mall of Asia. The cafe also boasts of four big screens and hundreds of monitors simultaneously playing your favorite movies.

The restaurant takes pride in showcasing life-sized action figures, film memorabilia, props used in different movies, autographed photos of famous celebrities and live movie characters straight out of your favorite Hollywood pictures!

|Star Wars Stormtrooper|
Here in Star Movies Cafe, diners have the option to order ala carte or pay Php699.00 per person for the Dino Buffet.
There isn't much variety of food in the buffet but upon seeing the prices on the menu, I say Dino Buffet is the better option.
|Bacon and Steamed Vegetables|
|You choose the meat and have it cooked on your preference|
On the table
|Assortment of everything|
We tried pretty much everything and the only food that we came back to the buffet spread for was the Steak. Everything else was so-so.
When the clock hit the 8:00PM mark, the lights began to dim and smoke started to engulf the stage.
BOOM! It was Darth Vader and the Stormtroopers marching to the stage!
Loud music started to play and the Star Wars characters danced like professionals! You really have to go and see how graceful Darth Vader can dance to the tune of Beyonce's Single Ladies -- it was hilarious!
If you want to be entertained and see your favorite movie characters in action like Atom (Real Steel), Spiderman, Bumblebee, Peter Pan, Darth Vader and many many more, Star Movies Cafe is the best place to be. Just don't expect to have an awesome dining experience, your eyes will feast on the actors and actresses in costumes serving you anyway.
Oh, and don't forget to reserve a table near the stage. I promise you, you'll die from laughter!
