Opened on October 2nd, 1911, the Metropolitan Theatre was designed by architect Abraham H. Albertson of the architectural firm Howells & Stokes. Originally a stage house, it began showing movies within two years of its opening, and alternated between presenting live theatre and movies throughout its history.
Between 1925 and 1928, the Olympic Hotel was built on three sides of the theatre. The Metropolitan Theatre was eventually demolished so that a new entrance to the hotel could be built. The final performance in the theatre was a stage production, on December 4, 1954.
