Metropolis at Metrotown
Metropolis at Metrotown (4700-4800 Kingsway) is the largest shopping centre in British Columbia and second-largest in Canada. With more than 450 shops spread out over more than 160,000 sqm/1.7m sqft, this is Burnaby's most popular tourist attraction. There's a 10-screen movie theater, and two inner courtyards have hosted Cirque de Soleil performances and Canadian Idol auditions. The huge food court, with 21 outlets and seating for more than 1,000 patrons, has great views of the North Shore mountains. It's less than 20 minutes from downtown Vancouver by SkyTrain.
The directly adjoining Station Square Mall has close to 40 retail shops and services, including restaurants, medical clinics, electronics stores, and a 7-screen movie theatre.
