Old nickelodeon operated by Peter A. Adamopolis. From 1907 to 1915, this house operated under the name Paterson Show and it was operated by James A. Campbell in October 1907 when it was closed for a short time by the City as it was a fire hazard because the projector was covered with a cotton flannel cloth. By March 1908 it had been renamed Gem Theatre and was operated by William Thompson.
