Metro Pointe's main attraction--and the ONLY entertainment--is the Edwards Stadium 12 Theaters. It's small (when compared to some theaters with 30 screens!) but good. The theaters feature all stadium-style seating and state-of-the-art sound. Situated around the theaters are a number of restaurants and snack shops. I like sipping cold fruit-smoothie drinks at Jamba Juice or grabbing a quick sandwich at Subway. Gourmet-style ice cream is available at the Cold Stone Creamery. Fancier restaurants include Sam Woo's BBQ and Seafood Bistro, featuring the cuisine of Hong Kong. The Arriba Baja Grill showcases the fresh taste of Baja California cooking. Finbar's Italian Kitchen serves pizza, seafood, and salads. You'll also find Karl Strauss Brewery Restaurant, featuring American cuisine and a microbrewery.
Shopping near the theaters includes a two-story Barnes and Noble bookstore with an in-store cafe. There's also a Nordstrom's Rack (department store outlet) and a Mikasa home store. That's it for the entertainment complex, but there's a separate shopping area of Metro Pointe adjacent to the entertainment complex. After the movie, you can stroll over to that side to visit Best Buy (electronics); Tilly's, Old Navy, or Marshall's (clothing); Linen's and Things (home store); and others.
