Mother Lily Monteverde is a national treasure of Philippine Cinema and the entertainment industry in the country. Mother Lily Monteverde is the founder and matriarch of Regal Entertainment Inc. And for the last 56 years and counting she has been solely responsible in bringing to the forefront a majority of the legends, icons, and veteran superstars that they have become.

More than half of the big names in showbiz either got their start as “Regal Babies” or were given their first big breaks in the movies that Mother Lily Monteverde conceptualized, envisioned, and produced.


Without doubt, it was Mother Lily who is responsible in making the showbiz landscape as star-studded, rich in history, and powerful as it is today.

It is a very long celebrated history when it comes to Regal Entertainment, Inc. and one day people will know more and be educated how Mother Lily Monteverde has spearheaded, strengthened, and assured the survival of Philippine Cinema and the entertainment industry.

Yes, it is only but right that we honor Mother Lily Monteverde always!

Now, here are my exclusive photos I was able to take that night. No need for captions here as you know who most of these people are.
