A lower echelon neighborhood theater that mostly ran re-issues of cowboy and horror films. There was no marquee, but a flat Art Deco signboard above the box office. The interior included a small refreshment stand separated from the small auditorium by two wooden partitions. It closed in 1954 and was razed a year later.

From Boxoffice magazine, February 1955:

The Metropolitan Theater, in the Bloomfield district, is being converted into a storeroom.

It was converted into a storeroom in 1955 and the description claims that it was razed around 1955. That was a short lived storeroom.
