Owned by Siegmund Lubin of Philadelphia and managed by the Hennegan Brothers of Cincinnati. The brothers later bought the Lubin Theater from Lubin, and ran the theater retaining his name. The Hennegans also had a small string of local nickel shows. Still later, they formed the Hennegan Printing Company and printed many movie posters for all the major studios in Hollywood and New York. Around 1915 there was even an announcement of a studio soon to be built in Kentucky to produce feature films, but nothing ever came of this proposal.
A conversion of a clothing store, the Lubin Theater was along a stretch of Fifth Street W which had about five or six early nickelodeons. This theater opened in January 1909. It was closed on April 29, 1930, last operating as an African-American movie house.
