Metro


Metro - The Art Deco cinema opened on 05Jun 1938 and was built and operated by MGM till 2005 when it shut down as it could not compete with the multiplexes sprouting up everywhere.
When it opened, The interior, floors, walls, ceilings as well as the furniture, was in shades of red and pink. The marble foyer and staircases led up to murals executed by students of the J. J. School of Art. Among the famous invitees was Gregory Peck. And if the films were classy, so was the audience at Metro. The ushers wore suits and In 1955 Metro was the venue for the first 'Filmfare Awards' night. It soon became Bollywood's most famous red-carpet theatre.
It was reopened in 2006 after renovation into a 6 screen wonder while restoring its original art deco interiors. It has been renovated keeping its old heritage look. Today the cinema has restored it spacious and beautiful look, artistic murals, glittering chandeliers, rich drapery, and Italian marble flooring.
