Metreon is close to the Convention Center area of San Francisco. It has a nice green area just outside the Metreon. As such, there are nice views of the area from the large window areas. There is a food court on the first floor and seating area (good place to go if you want something quick and attending the convention.)... More

If you are staying in downtown san francisco and want to do your own cooking to save this is the best place to shop. Within the metreon is now a well stocked target selling groceries. When it comes to supermarkets there is not much located in the area. Other then that for viewing first run movies there is a large... More

This is simply the best place to watch a movie in San Francisco. The Metreon is close to the mall, food, and of course... Target! As well, it sets in Yerba Buena park. The cool thing about the Metreon is if you watch a movie which ends at night, you walk out to awesome views of the city through the... More

Went to the Metreon many years ago and there was an amazing virtual bowling alley. It is now a Target. If you want to go to the movies in San Francisco it's the place to go, but not much else interesting there

Conveniently located next to the Moscone Center buildings, this place was great center to get food from fast food. Loved the Korean soup noodle place. My son loved it too for their dumplings. The grounds out back were enjoyable with lots of grass, young trees and nice water feature. It's bright, modern, safe and busy at lunchtime!

This place has tons of food options at great prices. There are also movies and a target - what more do you need?

This was my second visit from out of town (my first was a couple years ago). I never cease to be amazed at how gargantuan the cinemaplex is. I went to see a movie after having dinner, and was floored at just how large the individual screens are, compared to most across America. It was a regular theater (not IMAX),... More

When Sony created this place as a showcase of the digital life, it was truly an attraction. It had a Discovery Store, all sorts of cool digital experiences, and an Imax. Now that it is yet another Westfield mall, it is just yet another mall. Other than the IMAX, there really is no reason to go here. Starbucks, Target, food... More

I think we'll all agree the prices to see movies in the theater are getting a little steep - and at $14 a ticket, Metreon is no exception. But for the Hobbit in 3D - we thought it would be worth paying for the experience. The Metreon's theater is nice and new, clean, and we enjoyed seeing Hobbit 3D in... More
