Colon: The Documentary
We're adding a few more interviews and doing a little more research.
Interesting to note that during our research at the Cebuano Studies Center, we found out that Colon was actually a residential area during the 19th Century. Most of Cebu City's elite families lived in Colon, also known as Parian during that period. here's some photos I digitized for the film:
Mabini cor Colon street circa 1900
The building at the far end of the street was where hijos del pueblo once stood, now replaced by the Gaisano building.
*if i am not mistaken, you can still get this view if you stand on the marker placed on that corner and look towards Colon.
Vision Theater 1945
A post-war picture of the Vision Theater. The building still stands but no longer serves as a movie theater.
