Filmmakers behind the Thurgood Marshall movie chose Buffalo as their circa-1940 base because of the city’s collection of places frozen in time, like the Central Terminal’s cathedral-esque lobby and the mirrored jazz club glitter of the Rendezvous room at the Statler Hotel.
Should the architectural casting call come again, there are many more eras to choose from.
Step into the "Mad Men" era of M&T Bank headquarters that opened in 1967.
Pull up a stool at the well-worn wooden bar at Daren’s Tavern on Howard Street, and it’s like having a beer when it was an 1894 watering hole.
Or, imagine befriending Senecas in 1726 as a French soldier at the stone house “castle” of Fort Niagara.
Come take a look at a few places right here in the Buffalo region that are frozen in time, waiting for Hollywood.
