Shea’s Performing Arts Center opened on Main Street in Buffalo in 1926 and has been entertaining guests ever since. It is said to be haunted by its proprietor, Michael Shea, who died ten years after the theater’s opening. His spirit has been seen throughout the building and is said to watch performances from his own special seat. A ghostly voice has also been heard saying “isn’t this magnificent?” during restoration work.

In 2021 my friends had their wedding ceremony on the stairs in the main foyer. I was a bridesmaid and was on the very end of the bride's side on the top of the landing.
At some point during the ceremony, I got tapped on the shoulder. I assumed it was the videographer asking me to move for a better shot, but when I turned around the videographer was at the other end of the balcony. No one was behind me.
I can confidently say that I've now met the Phantom of Shea'sPosted 10/28/23
