Metro Arts


UPDATED 2020:  Metro Arts is now located in West End is awaiting new editorial.

A disused Frogs Hollow warehouse (circa 1889) turned into this not-for-profit arts centre in the 1970s and today Metro Arts houses an art gallery space in its gritty upper echelons the Sue Benner Theatre by emerging playwrights and directors downstairs and the quirky old skool cinema space the Lumen Room.

Metro Arts acts as an incubator of embryonic talent (Deborah Mailman and Sue Rider started out here) as well as hiring itself out to touring performers, with an ever-changing program of works.

School holidays might see offbeat child-pleasing acts like Green Smelly Things while nights can mean anything from one-man show comedies to three act plays about gay single motherhood to choreographed dance works to free opera. Nothing is conventional here and a $12 ticket might afford a glimpse of a future theatrical giant.
