One Fewer Excuse To Stay In Bed With Netflix

Once upon a time (the 1930s), the Upper West Side’s Metro Theater played movies—the real, live kind that you have to buy a ticket for. Since then, it’s provided a roof for a brief foray into the “adult film” industry, a couple of big-shot cinema chains, and a host of legal kerfuffles and vacancies. But as the
old adage tagline from one of the Mummy Returns posters goes, He will rise again.
“Like all Alamo Drafthouse theaters, the Alamo Drafthouse at the Metro will provide food and drink service to your seat and will uphold its famously strict no-talking policy. The new theater is currently scheduled to open in 2013.”
