Opened as the Allen Theatre on January 2, 1920 with Mable Norman in “Upstairs”. The name changed to the Metropolitan Theatre and had its grand re-opening in 1923.
This theatre was the first in Winnipeg to be equipped with 70mm. A former Famous Players theatre, the Metropolitan Theatre closed on November 26, 1987, and remained shuttered for 25 years, 4 days!
An extensive $20-million, two years restoration project by the Canad Inns company was completed in 2012, and it was reopened on November 30, 2012 as the Metropolitan Entertainment Centre. Canad Inns are a locally owned and operated business. The building now houses a 200-seat high-end restaurant on the first and second floors at the front of the building, and the main auditorium serves as a special events and banquet hall. There is also a screen available on which to show classic movies and sports events.
