As we all know, Sanctum was raided last May 2008 which resulted to its closure. I have no idea what happened to its owner but if the people behind it managed to regroup, I guess that they would have gone underground.
I’m asking this post’s title question because while reading the ending credits of Little Boy Big Boy, I saw the word “Sanctum” listed among the people and entities that the makers of the movie would like to thank. Is this the same Sanctum that used to be in Cubao?
Of course it’s entirely possible that this “Sanctum” is something else entirely, but given how small the PLU world is, I believe it’s unlikely. Furthermore, I think there is a connection between “Sanctum” and the O party scene in the movie. Before the raided Sanctum came to be, there was Manjobs. Manjobs was this exclusive group that organized O parties in the Quezon City area. My guess is that they put up Sanctum to provide a permanent “residence” to their parties. Unfortunately, Sanctum operated like a business without a business permit and they likely violated various laws, like Article 201 of the Revised Penal Code and RA 9208, by having live sex shows which resulted into the infamous raid.
So, can anyone shed a light on this mysterious “Sanctum”?
Update: Canuto vouches in the comments that Sanctum (Cubao) is really no more.
Update 2: The mystery is now closed.
