The Calderwood brothers owned this small movie theatre. Built in the early part of the Twentieth century. It was on Main Street. The children used to call it “the nickel dump”. It was closed and demolished by the early-1950’s.

I was told by a octogenarian that when he was small, he remembered a unisex bathroon. Not that many people in Johnstown,NY remember this movie house now.

Clarence Dopp also owned the “Nickel Dump”. Clarence’s wife Dorothy nee Jenner was a first cousin of my grandmother. Clarence and Dorothy’s daughter Nancy is still alive. I’ll check with her to see if she can add any more info on the theater. My father also remembers the theater.
