Occupying an empty shell in the Trocadero Centre, which was originally supposed to be a theater, the Metro Cinema opened on 11th October 1985 with “Hail Mary” and “Dim Sum”.
Metro 1 with 195 seats was the auditorium of the theater space whilst Metro 2 (84 seats) was the former stage area. Both were below ground level.
The cinemas were plain - with rough cast concrete walls but some stylish embellishments existed in the Art Deco-style stairs and signs. Design was done by Burrell Foley Associates.
It was taken over by City Screen and re-named Other Cinema on 30th August 2002, but this was short lived as it was closed on 14th November 2004 with “Coffee and Cigarettes” & “Red Lights”. The street entrance became a ticket bureau. By 2015 the cinema space had been gutted and converted into an up-market nightclub named DSTRCT.
