I am trying to locate a Nickelodeon in Manhattan (or any of the five boroughs) for a BBC documentary series about the start of the motion picture industry. It doesn’t matter if it’s totally derelict, or even if it has been demolished because we just want to film the location of where the Nickelodeon once stood. Maybe several Nickelodeons stood on one street? It would be fantastic if there was still a Nickelodeon standing, although I’ve searched and it seems to me that they have all long since been demolished in the region I’m looking at – I’m hoping you might be able to tell me not!
We will also be filming in Los Angeles and I believe there is still a Nickelodeon there, but we’d ideally like to film outside one in New York for this programme.
I’m going to NY on Saturday to scout for various locations and would love to be able to include a Nickelodeon too, so I do hope I’ll hear back from you soon.
