The July 24, 1964 issue of the Morgantown Post ran an article about the 40th Anniversary show at the Metropolitan Theatre, to take place that evening with a presentation of the 1924 silent movie “Blood and Sand.” A piano would substitute for the organ, dismantled in the early 1940s, which had accompanied the movies in the theater’s early years. The Metropolitan had regularly featured Keith-Orpheum vaudeville acts in its early years, and the house survived being gutted by a fire in the early 1930s

The Met is still in use by West Virginia Public Theatre. They presented their production of Mary Poppins November 29-December 21, 2004. Their summer season begins July 8, but no production has yet been announced.

Appears to be dormant – website very outdated. Is it still open?
