Dear friends,

We’re back for a sixth year in 2021 for our annual Western New York Movie Expo here in Buffalo, New York. All you film-watchers can visit this site to get the latest bookings we are making.

Our 2021 schedule for this year’s Expo is now complete and posted on our Schedules page. Once again, we’re screening a wide variety of rare movies – Hollywood’s Golden Era, silent movies, vintage television, and vintage animation classics.

And you won’t want to miss our Movie Memorabilia Emporium! Last year, dealers from New York, Boston, Minneapolis, Chicago, and other cities brought you posters, books, DVDs, movie reels, autographs, cameras, and many other collectibles.

Two screening rooms will bring a variety of films to the schedule. If you miss a scheduled movie, we will re-run it in one of the two screening rooms for you.

This is a film festival for movie fans of all ages – and seeing movies with an audience is always more fun! So is making new friends and catching up with “old comrades in collecting”.
