Did you know that when Shea’s opened in 1926 it was actually built to show silent films?!?  Sunday my Mom and I attended the silent film Sherlock Holmes there. When I first got the tickets I thought it was a play, but then my Mom was quick to point out that it was a silent film {note to myself to read better} …like no words just a pianist playing scores throughout the films 90 minutes. I was a little skeptical, I’m not going to lie. I was thinking I would want to leave halfway through the film, but it was actually amazing! It was like I experienced something from back in time – a black and white film with no words, just music. It was a nice change of scenery and something different. I highly recommend attending a short film at Shea’s if you ever can. It makes for a nice indoor activity to do when the weather isn’t so nice out outside.

{A brief welcome and introduction before the film started}

Oh and the best part – it was free! A free film in a beautiful building that celebrated their 90th anniversary this weekend. That’s pretty cool Buffalo. Oh and for those who like popcorn and candy to munch on when watching a movie – Shea’s had their concession stands open, selling sweet treats {the popcorn and twizzlers cost $8 – that’s cheaper than a movie ticket now a days}. Just putting things in perspective, its nice to have a beautiful venue like this offer nice {casual} events like this.
