MANILA, PHILLIPINES — The Metropolitan Theater has been slated for restoration following the signing of “a memorandum of understanding” between the city, the National Commission for Culture and the Arts, and the Government Service Insurance System.

According to the Manila Times, “the signatories could not stress enough the importance of the edifice as a national and cultural landmark.” Phillipine President Arroyo also noted her “desire for the restoration of the MET to its former grandeur befitting the country’s center of arts and culture for the common masses.”
