New Metrolux Theater at Outlets At San Clemente

San Clemente has a new movie theater that just landed in the Outlets! But not just any movie theater, it’s a Metrolux/IMAX theater where your senses will be engaged in endless colors and sounds! My daughter and I visited this 10-plex theater last week and saw the heartwarming movie “DOG” about a Belgian Malinoise named Lulu by his side who travels with her Army Ranger Briggs down the Pacific Coast to make it to her soldier’s funeral on time. Along the way, Briggs and Lulu drive each other completely crazy, break a handful of laws, narrowly evade death, and learn to let down their guards to have a fighting chance of finding happiness.

We loved how luxurious this theater was. When you first walk in you are greeted with high valued ceilings and 2 big escalators that will take you  up to the restaurant, concessions and theaters. But before you head upstairs there are a bunch of Kiosks that you can use to order tickets! I really like how that eliminates having to wait in line outside in front of a window like we used to have to do.  You get to pick your seats right from the Kiosk. The whole procedure is simple and kees traffic flowing seamlessly.

Dining & Concessions

There are two ways to Dine at Metrolux San Clemente. The first way is to eat at a sit-down restaurant called Scripted Bar & Kitchen. ( This restaurant is not open yet but will be shortly). This brand-new dining destination has a full-service bar and patio, The same restaurant provides an in-theatre dining experience to movie-goers bringing an elevated menu of eclectic dishes. (second option). Dine-In movie-goers will have the ability to order from the Scripted Bar & Kitchen menu using the Metropolitan Theatres app, at the kiosks, or at concessions allowing for in-seat delivery of your favorite cocktail, food or concession offerings. IMAX® viewers will be able to pick-up their food and beverages at a convenient counter before entering the auditorium.

There are some theaters with technology called D-BOX which will change the way you watch movies! You can see in the video that the seats that are red have D-box Technology.

D-BOX is changing the way you watch movies by moving the body and sparking the imagination through motion. With D-BOX, you control the intensity so you can move with the movie and feel every scene as if you were in it. We remove the line between you and the screen to create hyper-realistic, immersive, one-of-a-kind entertainment experiences that pull you into the story like never before.

D-BOX’s immersive cinematic motion is:

  • Non-distracting
  • Harmonized with the audio and video
  • A great and exciting upgrade


If you have never seen a movie in Imax I highly recommend you treat yourself. It’s an unforgettable experience! Metrolux Theater in The San Clemente outlets has an IMAX theater with  laser and super comfortable seating.

IMAX with Laser:

  • Sharpness: Experience incredible detail in every image with a sharper, clearer and crisper picture that delivers a heightened level of realism on the biggest screens.
  • Brightness: Laser brings an increased level of brightness to fill IMAX screens with the most vivid and lifelike images in 2D and 3D.
  • Contrast: Dramatically greater contrast levels in each frame provides a level of depth that draws audiences into the movie.
  • Color: The widest range of colors available to filmmakers so they can present more vibrant, deeper and richer colors in IMAX than ever before.
  • Sound: Whether it’s a pin drop or feeling the heart-palpating force of a volcano, with next generation IMAX precision sound, audiences will experience a new kind of powerful, immersive sound they can feel.


Even there regular theaters have heated reclining seats which make for the most epic movie watching experience ever! We actually brought some blankets with us but ended up leaving them in the car once we found out that the seats are heated. My daughter didn’t even want to get up from her seat once the movie ended.  I think I may have created a theater Princess :o
