The North Park Theatre’s marquee erupted in a whirl of reds and yellows, vertical blues, and greens and oranges Friday, as the relighting of the refurbished attraction signaled the 1920 moviehouse’s rebirth.

Bigger surprises are coming in late January, when Buffalo’s last neighborhood theater – boasting the city’s largest screen – reopens in its former glory with independent art and foreign films.

“This is a treasure, and I think that as movie fans, it would have been a shame to let this go,” said Ray Barker, the programming director. “I think the theater will be vibrant for decades to come.”
