Edisonia Hall - 1896 - 295 Ellicott Square Building
Through Edisonia Hall, the eager public reached the VITASCOPE THEATER.
This was one of the first permanent movie theaters in the world, and may have been the very first theater constructed from scratch exclusively for showing motion pictures. The earlier "theater" in New Orleans modified a vacant store, but Buffalo's Vitascope Hall was elegantly designed and built by Mitchell Mark only for movies!
