The new Gifts Theater had an invitational unveiling on the night of November 23rd, 1917, and opened to the public the next day, with “Polly of the Circus” as the feature attraction.

Mr Frank E. Lanius of Covington,Kentucky taught Marcus Loew what a nickelodeon was in the early 1900’s, Loew went on to own 400 theaters across the country. Mr. McMahon worked as a projectionist in Covington as well. Later Isaac McMahon went into Real Estate.
