Site of first Warner nickelodeon seeks Kickstarter help
NEW CASTLE, PA — With less than two weeks left to reach its goal of $23,128, the Warner Film Center (soon to be renamed The Historic Warner Cascade Theatre) is reaching out to everyone to contribute to their re-ceation/restoration project of the Warner Brothers first ever nickelodeon. The 5-cent theatre was located on S. Mill Street in New Castle, PA, a then thriving industrial city near the brothers' home in nearby Youngstown, Ohio.
The $23,128 goal, representing $1 for every resident currently living in New Castle, will be matched dollar for dollar by the Lawrence County Commissioners should the goal be reached by the Kickstarter deadline, February 1, 2014. With the matching funds the project can move on to completion.
Your help is critical and appreciated.
