The Metropolitan Entertainment Centre is a unique food and beverage emporium and Multi-Purpose Event Centre. Located in the heart of Winnipeg’s SHED District, this artfully restored 1920’s entertainment venue offers modern amenities in a historically opulent setting. 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.

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 Parlour and the Rooftop Patio provides an ideal spot for seasonal dining. The MET offers a delectable menu of contemporary casual cuisine prepared in-house.

On your own, or with 1,000 of your closet friends, we cordially invite you to The MET.
