North Park Theatre announces upcoming movies

Buffalo

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — They told us they were planning to open later this month, and now we know it will be a little earlier than expected.

The North Park Theatre will begin showing movies again on April 22, starting with what they described as “Japan’s top-grossing anime film of all time” — Demon Slayer: The Movie.

Earlier this week, Program Director Ray Barker told News 4 that the theatre would have a soft opening on April 23. But it appears that date has been moved forward a day.

On April 23, another film, Promising Young Woman, will join the lineup.

But those weren’t the only movies announced. The theater is also planning to premiere A Quiet Place: Part II after many months of delays.

The John Krasinski-directed film, which was mostly shot in western New York, will debut next month.
