United Artists Metro Center 6 was a movie theater located near the Metro Center strip mall in Colma, California. Back when this theater was open, it showcased the newest movie releases which were all first run. This theater was one of the few to almost always receive the chance of showing the ‘blockbuster’ films of the year and was very popular for it’s time. Unfortunately, as time went on and new theaters such as the AMC 1000 Van Ness(located in San Francisco) and the recently announced (as of 2000-2001) Century 20 (located in Daly City) began popping up, it was only a matter of time before movie-goers made the leap into more streamlined and newer theaters that simply offered not only a new movie-viewing experience, but a comfortable and stylish way of going about it.

As of spring 2002, the UA Metro Center 6 finally ceased operations and closed it’s doors to the public. The theater complex itself was demolished and was then replaced (quite quickly) by a Best Buy chain store, which opened in late 2002/early 2003.

TRIVIA: The last ‘major’ motion picture release at the UA Metro Center 6 was “The Lord Of The Ring: Fellowship Of The Ring”.

When I was a manager with UATC in Santa Cruz and San Jose the late 80s, this was where we had to go for our manager meetings. I hated going there for a variety of reasons, mostly because the theatre had no soul. The only thing I remotely liked about the place was those long hallways that separated the lobby from the auditoriums. It wasn’t done for aesthetic reasons, I know, but they did drown out the cacophony from the hub.

I knew this theatre wouldn’t last when the district offices moved from the Metro Center to the theatre in Emeryville, which also robbed me of my nice drive up Highway 1 from Santa Cruz into the city.

This theater was short lived if I remember correctly. It was built in the late 80’s and was closed in 2002.
