Makati Central Square is one of Makati City’s oldest malls. Formerly known as Makati Cinema Square and was owned by the Rufinos.
According to MCS officials, the mall showed its face to the world back in April 1982. The main aim of creating this scenic and aesthetic place was the revolution, they wanted to have a place of their own. A place where they could watch films and movies. They did not have cinema halls of their own back then. Cinema halls were mainly found in Makati CBD and other places which led to the birth of Makati Cinema Square.
The original idea was to build cinema halls but with time, the ideas changed and the people responsible wanted to make the place livelier. So, they added “toppings” to the project and built restaurants, shops, bars and sports centers such as bowling and billiard centers.
Makati Central Square is a beautiful and peaceful place to make friends, reunite with family, dine, and shop.
Recently, the place had undergone renovation aimed at making the customers more satisfied with the services. They have catered new restaurants, hobby places, and fantastic shops. The Underground Gallery is also a new addition to Makati Central Square.
