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.

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!
