Built on the site of the Liberty Theatre (1926-1930). The Apollo Theatre was opened by the Basil Bros. on April 12, 1941 with Cary Grant in “The Philadelphia Story”. It might have been the last cinema built in Buffalo until after World War II. Situated in a busy commercial district, the Apollo Theatre prospered until being severely damaged in a fire in 1966.
After many years of unsuccessful attempts to restore the theatre, ownership of the property fell into the hands of the City of Buffalo, which has now converted it into the Apollo Media Center, with TV production and broadcasting facilities.
