Filipino Indie Rock Movie “Blue Room” to Screen Exclusively in Cinema ’76 This June

Indie rock movie “Blue Room” gets its first theatrical run since its big win at the 18th Cinemalaya Philippine Independent Film Festival starting on June 7 only at Cinema ’76 Film Society.

“Blue Room” tells the story of a progressive rock band composed of privileged teenagers who get arrested for drug possessions and are brought into the ‘Blue Room’ where they must make the difficult choice between freedom or standing up for what they believe in.
