Previous Names: New Hippodrome Theatre
The Metropolitan Theatre, on Euclid Avenue near East 55th Street, had shown movies until at least the late-1950’s. The theatre later became the WHK Auditorium (WHK AM 1420 had its studios in the building where the Metropolitan Theatre was, 5000 Euclid Avenue, which is also known as the WHK Building). The WHK Auditorium was used for various purposes (meetings, etc.) through the 1960’s and 1970’s.
In the early-1980’s, the Metropolitan Theatre briefly reopened for movies, this time as the New Hippodrome Theatre, but that lasted less than a year. The Agora Night Club, a major rock music venue in Cleveland, now occupies the former Metropolitan Theatre/WHK Auditorium/New Hippodrome.
