What is the Niagara Post Theater?

This theater was built in 1931 by the United States Government as a place for the soldiers and families of Fort Niagara to enjoy movies, this theater was known as “The Post Theater” …

What is the Restoration Project?

Our goal is to completely refurbish the closed US military post theater at Fort Niagara State Park.  This work will be a catalyst to revitalize the other nearby historic Fort Niagara State Park buildings, with the goal of re-creating the area as a destination for ART, HERITAGE and ECOTOURISM

What is the plan?

Our restoration plan is based on the spectacularly successful restoration of the old Post Theater on Tybee Island, Georgia

Nestled conveniently in the center of beautiful Fort Niagara State Park, the Niagara Post Theater in historic Youngstown, NY, the Niagara Post Theater is ready to serve its community and the Niagara Region once again!
