Beautifully renovated theatre that hosts a variety of live acts (singers, musicians, etc.) and a variety of film festivals. We have been attending mostly live performances for many years and occasionally will take in an old movie on an evening when we just want to relax. Located in "downtown" North Tonawanda" - a city on the Niagara River. A must... More

The Riviera Theatre is one of the gemstones of North Tonawanda. It has all of its classical features restored----including the Wurlitzer Organ. The newly installed seating is comfortable and offers excellent viewing. We saw the Anderson/Ponty Band there and everything was awesome. Beverages and popcorn were also available at a reasonable price.

Historic theater home to the Mighty Wurlitzer Organ, which was originally built right in North Tonawanda. The inside of the theater is beautiful and there are a wide variety of shows from modern concerts, international artists/groups, organ concerts on the 1st Wed of each month, music ensembles and choirs, and movie series in the evenings and kids' movies on weekends....

This old theater is such a gem, it is beautifully maintained and immediately brings back treasured memories of day gone by. There is a terrific venue of shows and concerts and the average ticket price fits into just about anyone's budget. There is ample parking and lots of great places to dine in walking distance.

This theater is in great shape. It has been beautifully maintained. You can attend a silent film with the mighty Wurlitzer Organ playing. You can see concerts with well known artists. Always a treat. The tickets are often very reasonable.

This renovated theatre is a joy to visit, with the Wurlitzer organ to the old styled seats. It brings back memories of days gone by, watching Saturday matinees. Don't miss Stoogefest every summer!

We went to see rocky horror picture show for Halloween, and it was wonderful. We had so much fun and the place was awesome. We are doing it again next year for sure. I feel bad for the workers that had to clean up the place.

We have enjoyed numerous events at the Riviera Theatre and hope to enjoy more in the future. You will love experiencing the decor of eras gone by when you attend concerts, movies, entertainers, big bands, etc. at the Riviera. This theatre also has a Wurlitzer Organ made right here in North Tonawanda, NY and a wonderful Organ Musician. This is... More
