Located at 1304 Moravia Street, it was operated by J. Crestafano in 1914. While I couldn’t find an opening date, the above date of 1903 and closing of 1906 appears must be in error. The very first nickelodeon in the entire country didn’t open until 1905. New Castle’s first dedicated nickelodeon opened on Washington Street in December 1905.

Thanks :–)

Acrually, someone who still lives in New Castle could probably get the address from an old City Directory at the library.

Jack; These are great stories!

Not much of a chance, but it would be great to get an address, more info and photos.
