Metropolitan Theatres

Los Angeles based Metropolitan Theatres Corporation has been a privately held company owned by the Corwin family since 1923. Metropolitan currently operates a diverse collection of historic properties and state-of-the-art multiplexes among its 16 theatres and 78 screens in California, Colorado, Idaho, and Utah. Metropolitan is focused on achieving its next generation growth plan through new development, theatre acquisitions, and providing theatre management services. Bruce C. Corwin is the Company's Chairman and CEO. Bruce's son, David, is Metropolitan's President and represents the fourth generation of the Corwin family to run the company. Joseph H. Corwin moved to California from Sioux City, Iowa and founded the Company in 1923 with one theatre, the Broadway, in downtown Los Angeles. His sons, Lawrence and Sherrill, grew with the business, and Metropolitan was the dominant motion picture exhibitor in downtown Los Angeles by the late 1940s. Bruce's father, Sherrill, ultimately became the chief executive of the growing circuit and fostered expansion into Palm Springs and Santa Barbara, California. Metropolitan's largest area of concentration is in Santa Barbara County, where it has operated since 1950. In the mid-1960s, Metropolitan was among the first exhibition circuits in the nation to venture into a Spanish language film policy, both in subtitle form for American movies and in Spanish for Mexican produced films. The Company continues to operate two Spanish language theatres in greater Los Angeles as well as a traditional ten-plex in Calexico, California. In September 2003, the Company formed Metro/Rocky Mountain Cinemas and Resort Cinemas of Whistler which operate state-of-the-art cinemas in ski resort areas of the Western United States and Canada in Aspen, Colorado; Hailey, Idaho; Park City, Utah; Steamboat Springs, Colorado; and Whistler, British Columbia. The Corwin family's participation in public affairs and civic and charitable projects is well-established in Los Angeles and beyond. Metropolitan fosters local relationships in the communities in which it operates. At the University of California, Santa Barbara, there are Corwin awards for screen writing and play writing and dance and music composition. There is also continuing support for gifted music students through the Los Angeles Music Center Unified Fund. To further the cause of higher education, there have been innumerable benefit performances in Metropolitan's theatres.

I finally had the time to take the family to the new theater at The Foundry in Loveland. Terrible experience all around. After getting our tickets, we went up to the concession stand, and the guy at the counter didn't want to help us, he said that we would have to order from our seats. We got a menu and went to our seats. I was surprised to not see typical items like nachos or slushies on the menu. I was a bit disappointed, but we found some other foods to order instead. The food arrived, and things just got worse. The fries that came with the $14 burgers were cold, the popcorn was cold and oversalted, and the pepsis tasted bitter because the mix wasn't right. I ended up wasting 100 bucks between the tickets and food, and 2 hours for a boring movie. (I can't blame you for the boring movie, it just added to an overall bad experience)

I love going to the movies and we go to the MetroLux at Centerra.
BOX OFFICE RESULTS! #TheSecretLifeofPets2 clawed its way to the top of Box Office this weekend! Coming in second was Dark Phoenix. Which movie did you get to enjoy this weekend?
I have organized a Tolkien Legion M meetup in Santa Barbara on Saturday at the Paseo Nuevo 4 for the 9:10 pm showing. Please join us. Even though it is late notice as the site took until today to include the theater for hosting a meetup we may still get our special edition Tolkien pins if there are at least 8 to 10 people registered for the meetup. Also everyone who attends as part of a meetup has a chance at winning a trip to a future Hollywood premier. https://legionm.com/tolkien-meetups…
