Badly needs upkeep!

The government spent alot of money to build this structure, and renovation, upgrade, or fresh paint here and there will surely keep tourists coming.

The place isnt an architectural wonder, could be ok to visit if you already seen all the other attraction in the area, or to see a show. Generally speaking isn't also super well preserved, I presume this giant concrete box has seen better times.

The Cultural Centre of the Philippines remains one of the better theatres in Manila. I attended the Magsaysay Awards last week and the presentation was perfect - good lighting, good audio, good video.

CCP is one of my happy places. From watching ballet shows, to Cinemalaya screenings, to Philipine Philharmonic Concerts, CCP proves that it showcases the Filipino excellence in arts and culture. I hope that more people, especially the youth, get to experience and see the shows here. It saddens me that most of the time, during PPO concerts, the crowd is... More

If you simply love architecture, try to visit CCP. For tourists, it's best to go when there's a festival such as Pasinaya or Fringe, but there's always something going on in the theaters throughout the year.

The main hall of CCP is still amazing, however, you would feel that the place is a little bit old. There are several small theater inside CCP that are perfect during the screening of Indie films. Overall, It's still in it's good condition.

CCP is my favorite to-go to place whenever I want a dose of arts & culture. Almost everything is here. It is very accessible and it is open for all. They feature several artists for certain months for free! But the shows like musical & plays are not free. Here, you can witness talents and their wonders. It also holds... More
