Profile: The Metropolitan Entertainment Centre

April 28, 2016

Electra Sign Winnipeg was pleased to work with Canad Inns on their new signage for The Metropolitan Entertainment Centre at 281 Donald Street. The design challenge on this project was two-fold; capture the original look and feel of the theatre in its glory days but also use sustainable and dependable modern technology. The result as shown above really speaks for itself with an elegant design that utilizes the latest LED lighting, keeping it shining brightly for years to come.

“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.”
