The Many Lives of The Met Philly

Opera house. Vaudeville theater. Movie palace. Ballroom. Sports venue. Recording studio. Church. Few buildings in Philadelphia have lived as many lives as The Met Philly. In celebration of Philly Theatre Week and the grand reopening of this beautiful building, the Free Library's Theatre Collection presents a mini-exhibition on the history of The Met from its opening in 1908 under the direction of Oscar Hammerstein through its many ups and downs to today as its walls once again echo with performance.

Exhibition can be viewed during regular Rare Book Department hours, Monday to Saturday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. No tickets or reservations necessary.
