Shea’s Hippodrome Theatre was one of the movie palaces along Buffalo’s Main Street. It stood approximately one block south of the Paramount Theater (previously Shea’s Great Lakes Theater) and on the same side of the street.
In 1951, the building was renovated to the plans of architect Michael J. DeAngelis, when the original marquee had been removed and replaced with a more ‘modern’ (1950’s style) marquee with the name “Center” on it. The foyer was also given a ‘modern’ treatment.
The theater’s balcony was neglected and dark during the late-1950’s and 1960’s. As a result it was difficult to see any of the details of the theater’s design.
During the 1960’s, the Center Theater was the house that ran almost all of the Warner Brothers / Seven Arts / Hammer films.
