Share this

The Historic Hollywood Theater originally opened on April 16, 1926.  Famous back in the day for hosting big bands, famous vaudeville performers, first run motion pictures and live performances.  The theater closed their doors in 1992, leaving the building abandoned and susceptible to damage.  Since 1997, after being named a New York State and National Historic Registry landmark, volunteers "Friends of the Hollywood" have been working to restore the theater and hold events there as well.  

Currently it hosts the Horror at the Hollywood, a Halloween event, movies at Christmastime, the huge Hollywood Happening Motorcycle Event, and is a big part of the Heritage Festival in Gowanda.
