This article about Dipson’s decision to turn the theater into a discount, second-run theater, includes a picture of the exterior.

A nearly intact General Cinema site – and it did well when they had the right picture (prior to becoming a discount house last year it was splitting product with Quaker Crossing, which unfortunately led to this one often getting lesser Hollywood films they’d have to hold on to – and fortunately a good amount of art house stuff that would sometimes move over from the North Park). Two screens have digital 3D, four are digital, and two are presently 35MM with a digital conversion coming soon.

Dipson is now all digital. Since going to a second run house they have increased prices to $2 and 3d is $4. A great value.

The projections are bright and clean, sound is OK. It lacks any sort of surround sound and in the majority of the theaters the sound is simply coming from the front, nothing from the sides.

The ticket prices are great, the concessions are fairly priced and they once again make their own popcorn instead of trucking it over from another theater. Some of their chocolate concessions are melted because of the heat in the display cases.

The staff is OK. When I went this past sunday afternoon the concession girl had her head down on the counter like she was severely hung over. She made it out like a big deal that she was taking care of me. Note to the manager who was 5 feet away – fire her. She represents your company poorly.

Good theater, well maintained and fairly priced.

Dipson has indicated via their website that the theatre will close for business following afternoon showings on 10/18 so they can convert all six auditoriums to recliners. They are expecting the conversion to be complete and the theatre reopened for business the following Friday 10/23.

This theater has once again gone to first run movies. They seem busy even with Regal 18 a mile down the street.

There are no second run theaters in the buffalo area any longer.
