Opened in 1927, the Roosevelt Theater was one of the largest theaters in Buffalo, located on Broadway Street. The Shea chain took over half interest in 1930, and remodeled. In 1949, Loew’s Inc. gained control when the Shea chain was broken up.
Weekends-only operation began in 1960, and the theater closed in 1962. George Rosing was the manager for the whole period.
In the late-1950’s, the theater’s Marr & Colton organ, which had cost $37,000 and had not been used since the 1930’s, was reactivated and concerts were given in the last years.
