Worst theatre I have ever visited...They didn't clean between movies and it was so nasty. Feels like nowhere near the type of theatre that should be in a major city like San Francisco! Horrible.

Bar is never open. Big waste of space and over promise to guests. The place is seemingly run by 16 year olds who do whatever they want.

AMC Metreon win's most improved theater award. Almost everything is playing here, and all the theaters have reasonably comfortable recliner seats. I say "reasonably comfortable" because the seats don't recline far enough. They leave your legs hanging a bit. Bathrooms were recently remodeled too. Snack...More

I haven't been here in a while and I'm surprised at all the changes. Gone are the arcades and Microsoft stores. Now there's a Target. But it still has the awesome theaters that make the trip worth while. Pros: Excellent sound in theaters Cons: Lack...More

I really do not like how the seats do not fully recline. It hurts my neck and is uncomfortable. If you’re in the further theatre, the bathroom is a far walk so plan accordingly.

This theater is much improved since it’s original opening. It now features reclining loungers. If you have the opportunity, check out the special DolbyVision theater. It has an amazingly vivid screen and a spectacular sound system. I only wish they’d reopen the internal concession stand...More

I liked the clean screening room, where we watched “the Post” here, a lot. It had a big screen and an excellent sound system. I understood every word in a film that was mostly dialogue. Set up stadium-seating style. this room offered comfortable recliner seats....More

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter
for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able
to do more than just business - museums, top quality
restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call
this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized
