More than a century ago, on Sunday, April 5th, 1908, the Dewey Theatre was advertised in The New York Times with eight acts of vaudeville, topped by the Watermelon Trust and Ben Welch, and assorted moving pictures projected via “The Deweyscope.” The matinee started at 2:15pm, and the evening performance at 8:15pm. Tickets were priced at 25 and 50 cents. This was the last day of the engagement. Opening the next day for a week’s run, was a similar program, with the Kentucky Belles heading the vaudeville acts.
