The Metro Theater was one of two side by side theaters the other being the Savage Theater. It opened April 15th, 1931 and was managed by Dean Owens.

The Metro Theater closed in 1936 when the Plaza Theater opened, and sat idle for almost three years. The Davidges ropened the Metro Theater in 1939, employing Chester Van Hoy, Mary Sneed and Carolyn Crockett. One week later the Savage Theater opened directly next door.
