The Metropolitan Entertainment Centre is a unique food and beverage emporium and Multi-Purpose Event Centre. The state of the art conference, banquet and meeting facility can accommodate upward of 1,000 persons while retaining the original look, feel and grandeur of the historic theatre.

Designed by famed architect C. Howard Crane, the Allen Theatre first opened its doors 1919 to the arrival of the Golden Age of Cinema. Designed in the sumptuous style of the era, this “Movie Palace” offered films along with a variety of live entertainment. Opulently decorated lounges allowed patrons to gather and socialize, as well as be entertained. After 68 years of operation, the Movie Theatre was closed in 1987. In 2012 Canad Inns reopened the doors and revealed the new Metropolitan Entertainment Centre.

The Metropolitan Entertainment Centre features a variety of exquisitely appointed spaces to cater to any need. Enjoy a casual drink or an intimate meal in the lavish Lobby and Promenade Lounges. Enjoy dinner and then settle back to watch a movie in the Grand Hall on the 35 ft.by 26 ft. screen, or reserve one of the balcony level privates boxes for your next special event. Private meetings or pre-event gatherings can be catered in the state-of-the-art Function Room, and the Roof-top Patio provides an ideal spot for seasonal dining. The MET offers a delectable menu of contemporary casual cuisine prepared in-house by the talented team led by Chef Dan Ardies.

On your own, or with 1000 of your closest friends, we cordially invite you to the MET.

Eat, Drink, and be Entertained.
