Everything You Need To Know About Downtown Buffalo’s Boozy Movie Theater

Step Out Buffalo

Updated March 2020

When the Market Arcade Film & Arts Centre closed in 2014, Downtown Buffalo was left without a movie theater completely – not a good look for a thriving city on the rise.

Thankfully, AMC Market Arcade 8 (639 Main Street, Buffalo, NY 14203 – right near Expo Market) is open downtown, bringing blockbusters, independent films, and killer concessions to Main Street once again. Oh and some seriously note-worthy improvements to the experience like comfy reclining chairs, heated seats, and tray tables.

There’s even a bar inside called MacGuffin’s Bar & Lounge which offers beer, wine, and premium cocktails. You can also get snacks like chicken and waffle sandwiches, stone-fired flatbread pizzas, loaded hot dogs, gluten-free snacks, and Bavarian pretzels while you watch.

And trust us – it’s as great as it sounds.
