Metropolitan Theatres Corporation has been a privately held company owned by the Corwin family since 1923. Metropolitan currently operates 19 theatres with 90 screens in California, Colorado, Idaho, Utah, and British Columbia. Bruce C. Corwin is the Company's Chairman and CEO. Bruce's son, David, is Metropolitan's President and represents the fourth generation of the Corwin family to run the company. Joseph H. Corwin moved to California from Sioux City, Iowa and founded the Company in 1923 with one theatre, the Broadway, in downtown Los Angeles. His sons, Lawrence and Sherrill, grew with the business, and Metropolitan was the dominant motion picture exhibitor in downtown Los Angeles by the late 1940s. Bruce's father, Sherrill, ultimately became the chief executive of the growing circuit and fostered expansion into Palm Springs and Santa Barbara, California. Metropolitan's largest area of concentration is in Santa Barbara County, where it has operated since 1950. The Company currently owns and operates 27 screens at nine locations in Santa Barbara, Goleta, and Carpinteria.
In the mid-1960s, Metropolitan was among the first exhibition circuits in the nation to venture into a Spanish language film policy, both in subtitle form for American movies and in Spanish for Mexican produced films. The Company continues to operate two Spanish language theatres in Los Angeles as well as a traditional ten-plex in Calexico, California. In September 2003, the Company formed Metro/Rocky Mountain Cinemas and Resort Cinemas of Whistler which operate state-of-the-art cinemas in ski resort areas of the Western United States and Canada in Aspen, Colorado; Hailey, Idaho; Park City, Utah; Steamboat Springs, Colorado; and Whistler and Squamish, British Columbia.
