A series of photos from the South Portage section of Downtown. From the top: A look at Portage and Carlton; Don’s Photo (Portage Avenue); MTS Centre (Portage Avenue); the backside of Ming Court (Edmonton Street); a look west down Portage towards the MTS Centre; and finally, The Metropolitan Theatre (Donald Street, built 1919).

I finally got a look inside the recently renovated space. I’d have to say I was a little underwhelmed by the space. Maybe it was the gargantuan video screen playing a hockey game to a mostly empty room, but the space seemed to lack the class and grandeur that I remember it having as a kid. Still—the building’s reopening is one of the best Downtown stories to emerge in years.
