New State-of-the-Art Luxury Dine-In Theatre to Open in Orange County Featuring 60-foot Premium Large Format Screen

San Clemente CA—Construction has commenced on Metropolitan Theatres’ flagship luxury dine-in cinema at the Outlets at San Clemente in South Orange County, CA.  The theatre will fall under Metropolitan’s MetroLux brand and is scheduled to open during the fall of 2020. The 45,000-square-foot ten-plex will set a new standard for Orange County theatre-goers featuring reserved luxury recliner seating, 4K laser projection, and a 60-foot Premium Large Format screen. The theatre will also include a floor-to-ceiling bar, full-service restaurant with indoor and outdoor dining, and in-auditorium service.
