Shea's Buffalo Theater

There’s more to Buffalo architecture than Frank Lloyd Wright and Louis Sullivan — there’s Shea’s Buffalo Theater.

WGRZ has a story on the 1926 theater designed by Chicago architects Rapp and Rapp:

They spared no expense. The interior was designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany. Construction costs were $1.9 million. Everything was top shelf, from the custom carpeting, to the 135 Czechoslovakian crystal chandeliers, more than any other theatre in the country. When this theatre was built in 1925, Michael Shea told Rapp and Rapp that he wanted it to look like a European opera house.”
