Rizal Theater in Makati.

It was one of the classier cinemas in the late 60s, 70s and 80s. It later closed down in the late 80s due to fierce competition. People started going to malls to see a movie instead. In the late 90s it was torn down. The site where Rizal Theater used to be is now 6750 Ayala.

Vividly illustrating the condition of burned-out, battle-scarred Manila, as U.S. engineers and thousands of Filipinos begin the huge task of reconstruction, is this aerial view looking southwest across the Pasig River toward hulks of sunken ships in the harbor. Tall building, left foreground, is gutted, Eastern Hotel, center, across river, is burned out, general post office, extreme left, across river is Metropolitan Opera House in ruins. Battered wall of Intramuros, Walled City, and destroyed buildings inside, occupies rectangular area beyond post office. Left is demolished Santa Cross Bridge, repaired by Army engineers. The streets have already been cleared of rubble.





Survivors of War, Intramuros, Manila 1945




U.S. troops surrender to the Japanese at Corregidor in the Philippine Islands, May 6, 1942. A total of 11,500 Americans and Filipinos became POWs, including the commander, Lt. Gen. Jonathan Wainwright. POWs from Corregidor and Bataan were among the worst treated. May 6, 1942.

In August 1898 Spanish troops occupying Manila surrendered the city to the American expeditionary



AFTER THE BATTLE OF MOUNT DAJO (March 9, 1906).
From a negative made on the spot the day of the "brave feat of arms," when a great body of Moros, men, women and children, were killed by the army under Gen. Wood; "a logical incident in the sequence of events which will include the whole history of the Philippine posessions."
