“Queen City” North Park Tribute

Since opening as a historic single-screen movie theater in 1920, the North Park Theatre on Hertel has hosted its fair share of memorable movies. It brought movies to Buffalo that otherwise never would have made it here, and allowed a number of independent producers a chance to shine. While Dipson’s run at the North Park Theatre may be over, the theater will rise once more with the owner moving forward with an update to digital projection, as well as news that the North Buffalo mainstay will work with the local business community to enhance its offerings. That is a true testament to Buffalo as we know it today.
This coming Friday, the community is invited to attend the final Dipson showing of Producer/Director Peter McGennis’s newest film release, “Queen City”. “We’re going to the filling the house and paying our respects,” said Peter. “Dipson is ending its operations at The North Park Theatre, as their lease is up, and we’re going to be celebrating the legacy of the North Park, as Dipson Theatres proudly presents “Queen City” as its final motion picture release. Opening night festivities will include live blues by the Toni Lynn Washington Blues Band and the event will be filmed as Bonus Material for the upcoming Queen City Blu-ray & Soundtrack release. Tickets are $12.00. Come celebrate with cast, crew and community!”
