The "Oro, Plata, Mata" House in Silay

I am sure many people are familiar with Oro Plata Mata, Peque Gallaga's 1982 multi-awarded film but few seem to know that the opening and early scenes in this movie was filmed on location in Silay City. This is the scene where Cherie Gil and Sandy Andolong were talking by one of the windows of "their house"...that window belongs to the Jose B. Gamboa Ancestral House, one of the more beautiful heritage homes in the city.

 
Here is the movie trailer, where you can see the interior of the house.  The house looks exactly how I remembered it as a child attending children's parties there.  I don't think anything much has changed...except for the fact that the owner is now one of the grandsons who to his credit has preserved his family's ancestral home really well.



PS. The rest of the scenes in the movie was shot on location further down north in the town of Manapla, using the Jose Gaston Ancestral House in Hda. Rosalia.
