Isang ilustrasyon ng mga haka-haka tungkol sa
nangyaring trahedya sa paggawa ng Manila Film Center,
tampok sa taklob-paphina ng Money Asia (November 16, 1998)
          Naganap ang isang trahedya noong Nobyembre 17, 1981, habang ginagawa ang Manila Film Center. Nakaroon ng aksidente nang mabuwag ang scaffoldings at bumagsak ang ibinubuhos na simento sa ibabang bahagi ng ginagawang gusali. Maraming haka-haka ang sumulpot tungkol sa naturang pangyayari. May nagsasabi na maraming nailibing ng buhay sa aksidente na umano’y hindi na hinukay upang makuha ang bangkay. Dahil dito nagsulputan din ang mga “urban legends” tungkol sa pangyayari, na nagmumulto raw ang mga nailibing sa ilalim ng Manila Film Center. Sangkatutak na imbestigasyon na ang ginawa, maging ng mga kritiko ng dating Unang Ginang Imelda Marcos, subalit ang tanging napatunayan ay walang nawawala sa 169 na manggagawa sa naturang gusali nang madaling-araw na maganap ang aksidente, at lahat ng nasawi sa trahedya ay nailibing ng maayos.
