Metropolitan Theatre

The Metropolitan Opera House was constructed in 1890. It was more commonly called the ‘Met’. It served as a live venue until 1940. It started showing movies in 1940 thru 1947. The theatre was then gutted and converted to bars and a bowling alley. It was badly damaged by the floods of 1997. It was later restored and is now an apartment building called the Opera House Apartments.

The NRHP registration form for the Metropolitan Opera House in Grand Forks says this:

“The architectural classification of the Metropolitan Opera House is late Victorian in the Richardsonian Romanesque style. Warren B. Dunnell from Minneapolis, Minnesota, was the architect who designed the Metropolitan Opera House. It is believed to be the only theater Mr. Dunnell designed.”
