I love watching IMAX 3D movies here. The screen is so big but so clear, the movies come alive!!! Overall, it's an awesome experience to come to the Metreon and enjoy a blockbuster flick!

Maybe the most popular cinema in SF, Metreon is always packed. If you want to see the latest film in the huge IMAX theatre, book well ahead or be prepared for a long queue on arrival.

Used to jogging to this place during lunch time every day. Loved sitting outside on the grass, enjoying the beautiful SF city view.
But the inside became boring after the Sony PS center closed. The movie theater was so so with sub-par sound quality.

Ever since Metreon got bought out by Westfield and opened up the city's first Target, this place has gone from ghetto to fabulous. The AMC theaters are still alive and kicking, being home to one of California's largest and best IMAX theaters. The food court has a plethora of yummy eats and you can't beat the free WiFi and modern work tables. Metreon's City View is still a spectacular venue and great for large events. Thank God for the facelift!

Pretty nice theater with many shops and restaurants around. The only downside is that half of the movies are showing in his particular location. The other half are showing at the theater in the San Francisco Westfield Mall, which is located down the street.

A fun place to visit, but a little pricey. All the latest movies are showing there...many in the Imax theatre. There is a video game arcade upstairs with video bowling...pretty fun. The Wild Things play area was very fun for my children.Recommended for:Family Travelers

There really isn't that much to do in the Metreon besides grab some pub food at the restaurants or watch a movie. I think there is a Sony store in there but that's about it. That said, they do have some cool events every so often that coincides with the release of a Sony product. I got some cool video games souvenirs they were giving out at a Kingdom Hearts event.

A very sleepy mall, once the main attraction for tech geeks to go to. When it was owned by Sony, I used to love coming here to see all the interesting geeky things to see from anime shops to video games. The place has since started losing money and the excitement of the place declined.
Now they are renovating the Metreon to hopefully revive the excitement it once had. Most of the customer base has moved across the street to the Westfield mall.

Nice, but pricey for what you get. Generally the food inside is decent and the arcade is pretty fun. The real entertainment is the IMAX theater. No longer an absolute must-see for tourists, but definitely a fun place to stop by if you have time to kill.
