  Back in the 1940's , along West North Avenue, movie theaters marquees could be seen in nearly every block. One of the largest marquees had to be the vertical MET marquee, which can be seen here just behind the streetcar ( right ). The Met was located on the northeast of West North Avenue and Penna. Avenue, and was one of the nicer movie houses in West Baltimore.

   The old theatre lasted into the 1970's when it was torn down for a "park" and subway station. One old ad I found for the Met in it's last years was for the movie Rattlers circa 1976. The caption reads " What A Horrible Way To Die!". While that was intended for the movie itself, the caption goes a long way in describing the Metropolitan itself  and the
types of movies you saw at the  before it finally closed.
