A great place to watch a film. Plenty of leg room, an enormous screen,fresh popcorn at a reasonable price and the charm of a historic theatre.

There is a film series (www.hocn.org)featuring documentaries at this theatre taking place now. It has been a while since films were screened here.

I enjoyed seeing the classic film The Sound of Music on the big screen at Shea’s. It was quite an experience and it was nice to see so many families in attendance.

I had a chance to see this theatre in the late 80’s. It’s nice to see that it is still in use.

The theatre in New Jersey sounds identical to the Jerry Lewis Cinema in Niagara Falls,NY. It is currently used as an OTB.

LouB commented about Shea's Teck Theatre on Jan 1, 2011 at 12:16 pm

If my memory serves me,during the 70’s the Teck was having trouble getting first run films because the distributors were playing them in the suburban plexes.
The Teck began showing B movies, R rated adult films, and martial arts films.

The theater in Niagara Falls opened as a 16mm house but later was converted to 35 mm. It eventually became an adult cinema and closed in 2003. Today it is used as a retail store

Sorry. I was misinformed. Are there any theatres still using carbon arc.

I went by the theatre today and noticed the first run film Eclipse and a play by a local theatre group both running at the same time.

It is nice to see the theatre is being used.

Part of the “Welcome” sign is still on the marquee.

It’s too bad that this theatre closed. I think the nearest indoor theatre is the Palace in Lockport. There is also the Sunset Drive-in in Middleport.

I think the church was renting space for use on Sunday.

The Colvin theatre in Buffalo, NY also had an apartment where the theatre manager lived.

I had the opportunity to tour the projection booth. The projectors still use carbon arc bulbs which project a better quality film.
