The Historic Hollywood Theater originally opened on April 16, 1926, and was a famous venue for hosting big bands, famous vaudeville performers, first run motion pictures and live performances. The theater closed 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.
Gowanda’s Historic Hollywood Theater is representative of the lavish theaters that were typical during the roaring ‘20’s. It has been historically restored and is open on a limited basis for tours, plays & concerts.
