The Cazenovia Theater was the first permanent theater in South Buffalo. It began as a storefront theater, being enlarged later. It was longish frame building with a peaked roof. This theater shared business with the more modern Maxine Theater, just up the street, from 1914 until 1930.

When Shea’s Seneca Theater opened nearby in 1930, there were just too many theaters in that area, and the Cazenovia Theater was the oldest and weakest. It closed in 1940. To compare these three theaters, we can use admission charge in the mid-1930s; The Seneca Theater charging 25 cents, the Maxine Theater 15 cents, and the Cazenovia Theater 10 cents.
