Sony Metreon Tips (5)

Metreon (Now Westfield, formerly Sony): Fun Place Between Moscone and Yerba Buena!

This gleaming mass of brushed-chrome, plate-glass and 21st century attitude is one of The City's best shopping and entertainment complexes with first-rate shops, restaurants, attractions, and 15 state-of-the-art cinemas (Formerly Loews but Now AMC and are state-of-the-art when the Metreon first opened in 1999) and an IMAX theatre. Prices are higher than other Bay Area theaters like kabuki theaters in Japan Town. Views overlooking Yerba Buena Gardens and over to the Museum of Modern Art are one of the Metreon's best features (look at my pictures!) Photographers will also love the cool, gray curves of the building itself.

It is a four-story glass and steel edifice in my favorite South of Market District (SOMA) of San Francisco and was originally owned by SONY but was sold to the Westfield Group (Owner of Westfield Mall in Market Street) in 2006 .Young SF professionals release their sweetheart's hand to investigate one of Metreon's one-of-a-kind sensory delights and Shopping is tech-oriented but diverse: Sample new titles at the PlayStation game store.

Sony Metreon: Sony Metreon

Beautiful building and would be a great place to visit with more seats in and around the sights and displays. All the current movies. However seats are very tight and the typical handicap seating was not available in the theatre we were in, kind of ironic since the hallways are extra large. Had the old time theatre feel, with beautifull carpeting and appointments. We take our grandchildren to SF, every year for their birthday and this is where they wanted to go, they thought there was a huge arcade there, which there was not. There was the expensive drive and ride machines around the theatre entrance, and the Game store on the first floor. The DeVinci Display was going on there, and should be highly recommended. The food court was one of the best food courts I have ever been too. We ate at the Pizza resturant and the Salad Resturant, both were beyond excellent, reasonably priced and ample portions. Pleasant staff, very clean and made you feel at home. All in all, I whould still go back, and we were there at the Titanic Expo several months back. We could ask for chairs to sit down on, but it would be much better if the seating were made available.

Sony Metreon: On the count of three....DANCE!

We were ready to go once the music started. Okay, so maybe the directions were all written in Kanji........and maybe we hit the "SELECT" button too fast and ended up dancing to some Japanese Anime Techno song......and maybe we didn't have coordinated feet to go with the moving arrows that lead us.........but did the darn machine have to flash FAIL FAIL FAIL and GAME OVER in such big fancy letters across the screen?

Us EXTREME DANCERS got ripped off, man!

Sony Metreon: Do a little dance.....EXTREME DANCE!!

After watching the action-packed flick, "Charlie's Angels 2: Full Throttle" The gals were pumped up full of restless energy. Rather than serve up a few roundhouse kicks to some *bad guys*, we decided to try our hand at the EXTREME DANCE machine that was in the lobby of the Loews Theater.

It's a Japanese made machine where you pay $2.00 per person to try and match the dance moves that are given on the screen. You can pick your choice of music, the level of dance sequences you can handle......and you can either dance solo or duet.

We inserted our quarters and were ready to shake our *angel* booties to some EXTREME DANCE moves!

VT Screenings: We'll see you AT THE MOVIES!

A couple of us lucky VTers had a chance to see the Pre-screening of the upcoming CHARLIE'S ANGELS sequel: FULL THROTTLE. (Thanks Annapet) at the Sony Metreon in San Francisco.

The Sony Metreon is a prime entertainment destination in the city full of shops, restaurants, and home to the city's largest movie theater: The Loews Theater.

Our friend, Annapet, got a group of VTers and others together for a night out at the movies.

It was a wild ride during the flick but it's the company around you that really makes the difference!

Dress Code Cute and Casual!
