Niagara Falls Cinema

Originally known as the Hippodrome Theatre, it was operating prior to 1914. This theatre in the Little Italy neighborhood was known for its shiny blue exterior covered with movie posters.

It closed in the early 1960’s and was used as a church.

It reopened in the early-1970’s as the Niagara Falls Cinema. It was to be a family theatre with low prices. Unfortunately this didn’t work out and the theatre turned to pornography.

It closed in 2002 and in 2008 was converted into retail use as a second-hand good store.

Actually, the theatre is being renovated as a general merchandise store, and not a Big Lots. At this time, the general merchandise store is still under construction.

It seems now that they may be working on the facade because it shrouded in a blue tarp. Unfortunate that this city has last all of its beautiful theatres.
