Dunno about its early history but by late 1991/early 1992 this theatre had switched to a discount/membership format (as the Capri in Concord had become at this time). This may have been in response to the Brenden opening up — the two were open concurrently for a short while. I remember seeing the Metro ads in the CC Times and noticed how their prices and policies changed a number of times within a few months, and by late 1992 the ads had disappeared altogether.

There was a young manager/projectionist at the Metro named Tim. Some time after the Metro closed, he came to the Capri looking for work and spoke to my boss. A week or two later Tim was killed in a motorcycle accident on Highway 4.

On a personal note, I got my job at the Capri thanks to the manager at the Metro. I had come in inquiring about a job at the Metro and, while he said he didn’t have anything for me, he kindly picked up the phone and called the Capri with me in the room and spoke to the manager there.
