Metropolitan Theater, Manila

The Manila Metropolitan Theater, otherwise known as MET, is a Philippine Art Deco structure wherein various performances such as plays, concerts, operas, and musicals were staged in monumental fashion. Located near the Manila Central Post Office, it was esteemed to be a ‘modern cultural center’ as envisioned by its architect, Juan M. Arellano.
