Theater was a Buffalo Metro Rail station that served the entertainment and theater districts of downtown Buffalo, New York. The station was located on Main Street between Chippewa Street and Tupper Street.
The station was at the north end of the "fare-free" zone, where customers traveling north of Theater station are required to have proof-of-payment. It was the last above ground station, with the subway portal directly north of the station.
The station closed permanently on February 18, 2013, in order to be demolished to make way for the return of vehicular traffic to Main Street. The Buffalo Theater District is now served by the Fountain Plaza station, located 546 feet south.
