News About This Theater
- Mar 2, 2010 — Happy 45th, "The Sound Of Music"
This movie theater was part of the Cobian chain, which was bought by Wometco.
During the 1960’s it featured first run films, although not the huge blockbusters. The Cine Metropolitan was the kind of theatre that showed a wide diversity of movies, from Woody Allen movies to Bruce Lee flicks to British horror movies. It was also the place where all the "Planet of the Apes" movies were shown in the early-1970’s.
In the late-1970’s it became an independent theatre and the quality of movies dropped a bit. Still it was always a nice, comfortable first run movie house. It closed down in the early-1980’s. The last movie shown was the 1981 Charles Bronson film, "Death Hunt". The title of the movie remained posted in the marquee long after the theater was closed.
In the mid-1980’s it was transformed into a disco called "Levels". The place was very trendy for a couple of years but it eventually closed too.
In the early-1990’s it became an evangelical church. Currently one can see advertising for the church on tv, and it is always weirdly nostalgic to recognize the interior of the wonderful Cine Metropolitan.
