My Mom took me here to see my first movie - Quo Vadis. The city was a bustling metropolis then - pre Democrat New York

As a yoouth I used to go to Mike's Submarines and buy a great sub sandwich and hide it under my jacket before going into the Buffalo. I saw "In Like Flint" here as a teenager, a memory very peronal to me.

I do recall being sent by my mother to see Ben Hur at the Granada Theater on Main Street near UB as a child. How incredibly bored I was by made no sense to me...

About 5 years ago I saw Ben Hur here as part of the Classic Film Series that ran monthly. The theatre was packed and seeing it on the big screen with the elegant surroundings of Sheas really made it special.

Here's a few more that aren't listed. I used to go to the 'New Ariel' in the early 40's. Ticket price was $.05 and $.07 at night. It was located on High St. a few doors East of Michigan Ave. How about the 'Mercury' that was on Main St. near Shelton Square. Remember seeing the movie 'Bitter Rice' starring Silvano Mangano in the late 1940's. Another one not shown is the 'Hippodrome' that was located on Main St. on the same side as the 'Shea's Buffalo'. I remeber calling this section of Main St. "Theatre Row"

Karl...You sould take a picture of this building today. They replacedthe original signage and the front facade continues up to the roofline almost even with the building next store

What was the theater that was across the street from Shea's Buffalo? It became a General Cinema multiplex in the late '80s, but in the '70s and early '80s it showed horror and kung fu movies.

to think Buffalo has done one smart thing---kept this theatre and it has not been a disappointment

I've haeard that they are restoring the Buffalo.
The Fox theater in Atlanta is beautiful, but Shea's Buffalo has the Fox beat!
