Pinoy Swifties got the memo when Taylor Swift said to treat The Eras Tour Film like it was another stop of the tour.
Swiftie mania has swept the world once more this weekend, and it’s not just because of her surprise appearance on SNL. Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour Film finally landed in theaters for the first weekend of its limited run as Swifties around the world made their way to cinemas to see the cultural event. And that was the case for Filipino Swifties, many of whom are probably watching the movie to make up for the fact that Taylor isn’t bringing the tour to the Philippines.
Cinemas around the country were packed as Filipino fans sang and danced to their heart’s content and proved once again just how passionate Filo Swifties are. We scoured the internet to find our favorite moments and reactions that Filipino crowds had to the nearly three-hour concert film. Check them out below.
THE CRUEL SUMMER BRIDGE

We love how it was only the second song of the concert yet this crowd at a screening at SM North EDSA were already giving it their all, purple lightsticks included. There’s just something so special about seeing a room full of Filipino Swifties scream the lyrics to Cruel Summer.
@dbmnbg ✨MEGAMALL✨ pls ang funny nung mga katabi namin sa film HAHAHAHA #TSTheErasTourFilm #fyp #swifttok #swiftie #blankspace ♬ original sound – nica
No Philippines? No problem. These Filipino Swifties referenced the iconic “Sydney” chant during Blank Space and replaced the Australian city with Megamall. It was giving the best kind of Pinoy humor.
CINEMA? MORE LIKE A CONCERT

While some debate whether to watch The Eras Tour film in regular cinemas or spend extra to watch it on a bigger and better screen, we think what makes or breaks a viewing is the crowd you’re watching it with. Why have a dry crowd that doesn’t sing the lyrics when you can have passionate Swifties who aren’t afraid to have fun and get into the spirit? Even Taylor Swift herself got her whole life while watching the movie. This screening turned the cinema into a concert that we wanted to be in.
SPECIAL PERFORMANCE FROM TAYLOR SHEESH

Imagine watching The Eras Tour film and also having a performance by Taylor Sheesh. That’s the treat the crowd at Swifties Philippines’ premiere night block screening at Ayala Malls Manila Bay got when Taylor Sheesh made her way to the front to perform Love Story. Being a Filipino Swiftie really is a different kind of experience.

The dedication for Filipino Swifties to show up to the cinema dressed in their Taylor-inspired fits is commendable. There’s nothing like cosplaying as Taylor Swift to watch her concert movie. Bonus points if you can guess the reference of these ghostly Swifties.
