Grand Opening of the Varsity Theatre

On Friday, February 12, the entire community is invited to attend the Grand Opening of the Varsity Theatre. After a painstaking grassroots process to restore the theatre, owner Ibrahim Cissé and his avid supporters will be unveiling all of their hard work.

This is the first time that the Varsity Theatre will open its doors in over a decade. It’s a monumental occasion for the East Side, as well as the entire city. Buffalo will have yet another grand music venue and event center in its midst, in a part of the city that deserves to have such a quality social and cultural amenity.

Save the date for this historic occasion. The event is a wonderful chance to support Buffalo go-getters who saw a vision, and did everything that they could to bring it to reality. The rebirth of the Varsity Theatre is just another step towards revitalizing the whole of Bailey Avenue.
