Shea's Seneca is reopening for the first time in decades. It will not house banquets and events instead of movies.
"Oh, I think it's just the beginning I think the whole neighborhood is getting turned around" Shea's Seneca owner Molly Koessler said.
The entire theater had to be redone and restored to make sure it can accommodate larger crowds for events.
The transformation is the first in a few on Seneca Street. Four store front businesses and over 20 apartments will be on the same lot.
"We're proud of the work we have done here and finally think that this building will be the catalyst for a renaissance of this neighborhood" Developer Jake Schneider said.
