The North Park Theatre in Buffalo, New York is set to reopen on March 7, 2014, according to the theater's web site and a story published recently in The Buffalo News:
Hertel Avenue is about to get its crown jewel back.
The North Park Theatre announced Monday that its much-awaited reopening will take place March 7.
And when it does, longtime observers can’t help but point out, this will not be your father’s North Park Theatre. Some significant changes are in the offing for the North Buffalo movie house, apart from the extensive renovation that some insiders are putting in the neighborhood of $250,000

The theater opened in 1920 and Bill Dipson took over in 1967, but it closed June 6, 2013 when Dipson Theatres decided that it would no longer operate the movie theater. The president of the company said that they hadn't made money at the location in five years.
The new owners seem to be trying to bring in movies that haven't seen wide distribution, so it will be interesting to see if they will be able to attract a loyal audience with movies they have in their upcoming line-up, such as Girl on a Bicycle, Better Living Through Chemistry, and On My Way (Elle s'en va).
The Regal Elmwood Center 16 will be filling people's needs for mainstream movies, and the Dipson Amherst 3 and Screening Room Cinema & Cafe seem to be showing some non-mainstream fare that may present a challenge for the new theater, but the excitement is always high for the reopening of a historic theater and they should have a good chance to create an impression with moviegoers in the area.
