Buffalo Theatre District: Food and Fun

Downtown Buffalo is once again a thriving place live, work and play, and the Theatre District has contributed to its recent resurgence. Designed by architect and Professor Alfred Price, the district draws Broadway shows and contains several historic theatres offering performances that cater to a variety of audiences.
Shea’s Theatre and the Studio Arena Theater are probably the most well-known venues in the district. Shea’s opened in 1926, originally showing silent movies. Today, it hosts an array of traveling Broadway shows and special events. It also features one of the few theater organs still operational in the U.S. The Studio Arena Theatre was founded in the 1920 by a group of local enthusiasts, progressing as both a theatre and theatre school.
In the mood for a more intimate show? Here are a few smaller theaters worth checking out when you’re in downtown:

In addition to seeing some fantastic live shows, there are plenty of other things to do in the Theatre District. You have a lot of options if you’re looking to have a entertaining evening downtown.
Follow the Theater District on Facebook or Twitter to keep up on the latest events and shows.
