Metro’s milestones

1957: Mr Ong Tjoe Kim, a movie buff, named his company after the well-known movie studio Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. He shortened it to a two-syllable name that was easy for customers to pronounce.

1971: Metro added star power to its retail events with appearances by high-profile personalities. For example, in 1971, Hong Kong star Nora Miao – who acted opposite martial arts legend Bruce Lee in several movies including Fists Of Fury (1972) – greeted fans at Metro Supreme in Supreme House in Penang Road.
