Araneta Center was part of my childhood. When Megamall and Galleria are not yet established, my family always goes to Araneta Center to do our holiday shopping. We shopped at Isetann, SM, Plaza Fair, and Fairmart. We watched the annual Christmas display of COD. We did some recreation activities at Fiesta Carnival. Among all the establishments that I mentioned, the only remaining until now is SM. These establishments need to pave way for the increasing demand for modernization.
Araneta Center is also the hub of Philippine entertainment. Concerts, sports events, beauty pageants, and even movie screening are always held at Araneta Center. The newest landmark at the Araneta Center, Kia Theatre, has officially opened its doors in a recent cocktails attended by top executives of Araneta Center and Columbian Autocar Corporation. Columbian Autocar Corporation is the assembler and exclusive distributor of Kia Motors vehicles in the Philippines.
Kia Theatre, formerly New Frontier Theater, is being developed as one of Metro Manila’s top performing arts venue. With its official launch, avid concert goers can look forward to exciting concerts and performances that will happen here.
