Everyone in your family will enjoy coming here at Metreon Center. They have a little bowling place and of course the Sony store where you can play the latest video games. You can catch a matinee at the show or you can browse at the many stores they have inside the center. Fun place

The Sony Metrion is a great place to go. There are so many things on each floor. Imax and the movies are fabulous. The theatre is clean and the seats are comfy. I like all the little shops there too.

I love going to the Metreon just to be there. It's a fun place to hang out, see a movie, window shop, and eat. But yes, I do say window shop because it's soooo expensive!

PROS: Great movie theatre, fun discovery store and sony store
CONS: Prices

This is a great place for people who are tech savy. I can sent my husband there and he will be gone for hours. The theater is huge and very clean. The food is good but a bit pricey.

PROS: Great place to learn about new tech stuff.
CONS: You have to drive in the city and pay for parking.

My son loves this place. Each time a new ps2 game comes out, I take him here to test out the game. Where else can you play video games for hours and not have to pay for it. If your child is old enough to be left alone for an hour or so you can go and check out all the other stores in the center. This is a truly cool place to go!!

When there is nothing else to do with 4 kids - we head to the Metreon. We usually start in the video arcade with some virtual bowling and then play some video games. I like the classic section of the arcade. Afterward we go eat downstairs or catch a movie. It is a fun place for all.

Home for all of the latest gadgets for your personal and home use from Sony. The Metreon has a few levels full of all the newest inventions from Sony like home stereo equipment, playstation games, personal mp3 players, and wide screen TVs. They also have they're own movie theatre with IMAX.

If you have nothing to do on a rainy day - head to the Metreon. That is what we do and we love our rainy days now. We go see a movie there or play high tech bowling-type of game (which costs a lot, by the way.) Or we sit in a food cort and eat Japanese food and drink coffee with a delicious desert.

We always have somewhere to park since the parking garage is on the next block - also not free but then nothing in life is/

WOW! Metreon is a wonderful place for kids and adults. You can view movies there, play cool games and eat nice foods in the food court. PArking is tough - so park in a public lot a block away

I usually go here just to watch movies since the location is great and it's walkable from BART. But besides the huge IMAX theater, there is a nice collection of semi-fast food restaurants, like Buckhorn Grill and Firewood Cafe which have great salads and sandwiches. Jillians is a great bar/lounge with nice happy hour too. One of the largest stores is the Sony store, which is a fun place to browse and check out new gadgets.

This place has a lot of entertainment including video games, a movie theater, stores selling Sony electronics, and restaurant. The Lowes movie theater has different selection of movies including IMAX movies. Its theater is not overcrowded and you can sit in a place thats just comfortable to you. There is also a video game area with the newest releases of Playstation games. The restaurant area isnt crowded so if you dont want to eat in a crowded area, then thats the place to be.

Entertainment for the whole family. The kids can check out the lower level filled with playstaion stations they can play the newest games out. Then you can head up a level and check out the newest audio/video equipment available for your home theatre. Then when you get hungry you can head back downstairs to the food court.

The Metreon is like a mall for Sony products. They have so many stores and attractions here. The bottom floor lower level has restaurants and small places to eat. There is also a store devoted for the video gamers. Another floor is dedicated to audio junkies for home entertainment etc. They also have a theatre with IMAX. Very good place to visit.

I always felt that Metreon is over charging. Granted it "looks" nicer, but it's hardly worth the extra money when you can get the same decent movie experience elsewhere at a fairer price.
Parking is also another concern, but there is a parking structure close by.

I always go to the Metreon when I want to see a movie. The fact that they have so many other things to do besides watching a movie is also great. There is only one bad experience. There is a Starbucks on the first floor of the movie theater. I bought a coffee and a person is not supposed to bring it into the movie. I will never understand how there is a store in the movie theater, and I cannot bring in what I buy. I think that defyes the whole purpose of having the Starbucks there because the consession stands do not serve coffee, and I personally do not like soda.

The Metreon is a place where you can spend the whole day. It's in a busy part of the city so it's always hopping with people. I like the movie theater, the arcade and the piano bar. There's also a ton of shops. Some of them come and go quickly. I've also heard good things about the Where the Wild things are restaurant--for kids.

metreon is a great place for anyone to hang out. they have a movie theater inside if you feel like watching a new release. The playstation store is there, which allows people to sit down and play games. There are a lot of kids who play there on the weekends. They also have great restaurants there and a couple of starbucks.

The Metreon was recommended to me by a friend. There's a huge Loews theater, and lots of stores and restaurants throughout. It's basically a mall, but the main attraction is the movie theater. I believe on weekends they do a live-cast from the ground level, which is kind of cool. Other than that, I don't understand the hype about the Metreon.

For the kids, I highly recommend the "Where The Wild Things Are" store on the upper floor.

There's also a nice waterfall tribute to Martin Luther King outside.

If you are going to go there, I recommend eating there as there aren't very many good eating establishments right around the Metreon.

My favorite part about the Metreon is the Playstation center. It tends to be filled with adolescent boys and young men testing out the latest playstation games. An AMC movie theater is also housed here. There's a small food court with a variety of different restaurants and a cafe. The Metreon is always great for burning a few hours.

Being that it's in the city, and being that it's Sony, there seem to be a lot of loud teens and techies that like the Metreon. Don't get me wrong - I'm neither, and yet I go - because of the movie theaters. There are casual restaurants downstairs and a few retail shops hawking electronics and gadgets, Jelly Belly jellybeans, and pewter figurines.

PROS: You can see Aibo and other Sony gizmos.
CONS: Teenagers!

I think the Metreon is hell on earth, although I don't doubt others would disagree. It's a vast assemblage of flashing lights, Sony peddling its technological projects, and junk to buy. If I was into electronics products, perhaps the Metreon would be the place to go. For now, I think it's a shame that San Francisco has devoted such a large tract of space for this weird, ugly contraption.

This is an adult's entertainment park. Lots of electronic type stores to check out. They have a huge theatre where you can see the latest movies. The chairs are so comfortable and the effects are amazing. You feel like you are in the movie. It is priceybut definitely worth the experience. Great location, in the heart of downtown. They also have restaurants to check out.
