Grilling season is upon us as Sunday night football returns to screens across America. With many sports having to pause or delay their seasons this year, the NFL will be one of the only to proceed with its full, 256 game regular season as originally scheduled – yes, this means playoffs and Super Bowl included for now! Make your reservations for the big screen inside the Metropolis theater room, as the 2020 NFL season kicks off with a traditional Thursday night opener on September 10th. The SoFi Stadium and new home of the Los Angeles Rams and Chargers will be revealed on Sunday, September 13th as the Rams take on the Dallas Cowboys. The 70,000 seat stadium located in Inglewood will proceed its inaugural season without fans until further notice. Enjoy Metropolis this NFL season for evenings of grilling on the Sky Deck and post-game fun in the Billiard Room.

Alfresco screenings seem to be the talk of 2020, especially when searching for the perfect summer evening activity that is both safe and entertaining. Often referred to as a relic of the past, drive-ins have recently resurfaced and are beginning to pop up throughout Los Angeles. Whether located within open-air parking garages, building rooftops, or park settings, there is bound to be a showing happening near you. To get the most of out of your drive-in experience we recommend a quick stop at Downtown’s specialty market, Dopolavoro, to stock up on high quality charcuterie, cheese, and fresh baguettes. Every seasoned moviegoer knowns good snacks make all the difference! September’s drive-in movie lineup includes films such as The Sandlot, La La Land, Men in Black, and Get Out.
