Event Notes


Bring the whole family to Metro's Annual Traditional British Pantomime, SINBAD! It wouldn’t be Christmas without this Christmas cracker of joy and laughter, music and dance! All the traditional Panto characters to cheer and boo and sing along with plus a rollicking adventure on the hilarious high seas! With a live orchestra and a cast of twenty, you don’t want to miss this Christmas treat!

The Metro is working with the LOWER MAINLAND CHRISTMAS BUREAU to bring toys to children during the holiday season. From December 7th to December 18th, will be accepting new, unwrapped toys and gift cards under our Christmas Tree in the lobby!

Opening Night of SINBAD! will be extra special with traditional British Christmas carollers performing on the street outside the theatre for one hour prior to the show. Your Christmas can begin with a visit to Metro Theatre! And don’t miss out on Santa’s visit! That’s right, the fat man in the red suit will join us upstairs on a special throne in the lounge where your child (or you for that matter) can get a photo on his knee. This is available for one hour before the show and at intermission at the two performances on December 23!

Plus a SPECIAL CHRISTMAS TREAT! At our matinee performance on Boxing Day, December 26, we are giving out traditional British Christmas crackers to EVERY AUDIENCE MEMBER will get a Christmas cracker and for a lucky few, win prizes including tickets to ALWAYS PATSY CLINE and other shows in our season, as well as, Christmas treats from our concession and lounge. It promises to be an afternoon of Christmas delight!
