Close to the bustling tourist area in Niagara Falls, The Seneca Queen Theatre is a wonderfully renovated 300 seat theatre in the heart of the Q district downtown Niagara Falls.
The Seneca Theatre was built in 1941 with a seating capacity for 911, originally owned by Famous Players theatre.
A mural on the upper interior walls was one of the last commissions of Montreal-based theatrical decorator and artist Emmanuel Briffa. The theatre hosted many events over the years, including the Canadian premiere of Marilyn Monroe’s film “Niagara” on January 28,1953.
A large, illuminated marquee was part of the original façade, the upper part of which still exhibits art deco styling. The interior was decorated throughout with native Seneca motifs such as birch bark-cast plaster walls, ceremonial masks and belt designs. The theatre floor was graded to give each of the original 918 seats a front row view of the screen.
Currently we showcase Tribute bands, movies and offer rental for concerts, performances, meetings, workshops, corporate parties, weddings, special events, film screenings, recitals, and more. The theatre seats 315 people in addition to this there are up to 10 wheelchair spaces.
PARKING is complimentary in Municipal lot behind the theatre, with complimentary street parking also available during the evening after 5pm
