“One of the last stand-alone movie theaters in San Juan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

If you are tired of going to the movies in a mall, the Metro Theater in the Santurce district is the place to go. Originally built and owned by MGM in the early fifties, it was a classic movie palace until it was renovated some years ago to add 3 more screens. However, it still retains most of it's charm.

“Opera in Santurce”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

this is where we see the opera transmitted live from the NY MET. Seats are NOT the most comfortable BUT they do have a 3D theater and the opera is the BEST. Parking is down the street in a safe, in door garage.

“Craving to go to movies”

If you are a movie fan thar can not wait to see the latest movie and is around Condado or Isla Verde hotels, take a bus and fulfill your craving. The Metro is easily access by public bus.

“MetOpera in HD near Condado and Miramar (San Juan Metropolitan Area)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2012

A great theatre chain that delivers with clean theatres, polite personnel and first-run movies in English and in Spanish. Check out www.caribbeancinemas.com
Down the road from this theatre is their other theatre, The Fine Arts, which features Art Films, European Films and hipster stuff! The BEST part is their "Wednesday Discount" for ladies!!! YAY!!!
Also, MetOpera in HD is not to be missed during the opera season (Sept-May)...it is THE chicest daytime scene in San Juan!
