The Sattler Theater / Broadway Theatre / Basil's Broadway, near Jefferson Avenue, opened in 1914 as a 928-seat movie theater at a cost of $35,000 on the site of the wood-frame Casino Theatre. It was commissioned by John G. Sattler, who also owned Sattler’s Department Store. The Sattler was designed in the Beaux Arts style by Henry Spann. The Sattler changed hands in 1920 and was rechristened the Broadway Theatre, later known as Basil’s Broadway. The building became Muhammad’s Mosque in the mid-1960s and was purchased and occupied by God’s Holy Temple from 1976 to 1984. The building was leased to Joy Temple Church from 1987 to 1996. It is currently owned by Western New York Minority Media Professionals, Inc (WNYMMP), and is slated to be renovated. WNYMMP's restoration plan includes hosting the Annual Professionals of Color in Media Hall of Fame Awards Dinner, as well as showcasing films, theatrical productions, concerts, live events, and business conferences. A dining hall is also planned. A new facility, The Bob Coles Institute for the Media Arts and Technology, is proposed to be constructed behind the theatre. This would also be the home of the Minorities in Media Museum.
