The Landmark Metro Cinemas at 4500 9th Ave. NE in Seattle, Washington is no more. In its place when it re-opens will be the new Sundance Cinemas Seattle, the first Seattle location for the chain, which has three other locations around the country. As you may gather by the name, the theater chain is part of actor Robert Redford's group of Sundance-branded entities, which include the popular film festival.
The Seattle Times published an article in early April 2012 about the switch from Landmark Theatres to Sundance Cinemas:
Sundance Cinemas plans to take over the University District's Metro Cinemas on May 1 and remodel it to include stadium seats, new projection and sound systems and a lounge with a full bar.
The 10-theater venue, renamed Sundance Cinemas Seattle, will continue to show movies during the remodel.
Started in 2006, Sundance Cinemas is headed by Paul Richardson, former president of Landmark Theatres.
"Personally, I am pleased to have a venue in Seattle again, and can't wait for the opening," Richardson said in a release.
In the same release, Redford said he has wanted a theater in Seattle since Sundance Cinemas began. "Because independence and personal expression have always been encouraged and embraced here, the city's overall cultural vitality make this a particularly exciting community collaboration for us," he said.
