It was a night to remember as Glorietta 4 cinemas was adorned with stars from the previously concluded premiere of the digitally restored version of the movie “Hihintayin Kita Sa Langit” (1991) after 26 years for the second wave of Cinema Classics-Filipino Films in Retrospect at Ayala Malls Cinemas. This is in partnership with ABS-CBN Film Restoration Group for the project Sagip Pelikula.
The movie where the famed Char-Dawn love team started were attended by no less than the lead stars themselves Dawn Zulueta and Richard Gomez, together with their director, Carlos Siguion-Reyna and other cast and crew – Eric Quizon, Vangie Labalan, Guila Alvarez, Raquel Villavicencio (writer), Romy Vitug (cinematographer), Jess Navarro (editor) and Richard Reynoso (who sang the movie theme song). Family and friends also watched the premiere as a show of support, Congresswoman Lucy Torres-Gomez and daughter Juliana, Bibeth Orteza, Rafa and Sarah Siguion-Reyna, Audrey Tan-Zubiri, Kaye Tinga, Ben Chan, Keren Pascual, Jeffrey Hidalgo, Joel Ruiz, Matt Torres, Miguel Pastor, Wig Tysmans, Lee O’Brien, Nikki Valdez, Mon Confiado, Ms. Celeste Legaspi among others. Guests who flocked the premiere giddily reminisced the scenes from this Filipino classic film.
