Alleyway Theatre is located in Buffalo, New York’s historic Theatre District.

Constructed in 1941 by Central Greyhound Lines, the building served for decades as the city’s primary bus depot.

It is one of the many terminals designed by nationally prominent architect William S. Arrasmith of Louisville who created over one hundred stations for Greyhound in the late thirties and early forties.

The Alleyway Building is one of Buffalo’s most prominent examples of the Art Moderne style.

The streamlined two story structure boasts the important features which defined the work of W. S. Arrasmith including round windows, curved wall surfaces, stainless steel and aluminum alloy trimmings, terrazzo floors, limestone façade, and exterior surfaces of glazed tile.

This building is one of only a handful of Mr. Arrasmith’s creations which is still standing.
