Did you know that Buffalo is home to the first known dedicated, purpose-built motion picture theater in the world? The Edisonia Hall, which was located in the basement of the Ellicott Square Building, is where Buffalonians saw their first motion picture. Can you guess what year it opened?

The Edisonia Hall, also known as Vitascope Hall,  opened in October 1896 and remained open for nearly two years.
