Update on Sundance Cinema (formerly Metro)

A few months ago, I blogged about the changes at the former Metro Cinema in the University District; now Sundance Cinemas Seattle. Major renovations began earlier this spring, and now the cinema announces a date for its grand re-opening: Friday, July 19th. Earlier that week, several local nonprofits (Arts Corps, Three Dollar Bill Cinema, Climate Solutions, and Seattle International Film Festival) will be hosting preview evenings at the cinema.

I have not visited the cinema since March, when the renovations began, but you can see pictures of the work in progress on the theater’s blog. According to a press release I received today, when re-opened the theater will offer “reserved seating, big comfy seats with tablettes, stadium seating, brand new digital projection, a new full bar serving drinks and bistro fare guests can take to their seats, the Living Room Lounge, an art gallery, new carpet, and simplified validated parking for only $2.00 after 5 pm.” Upon its re-opening, the theater will be a 21-and-over facility.  Stay tuned for more details as the opening gets closer.
