This early nickelodeon was built in 1910 by the architecture firm of A.B. Mullett & Co. (Thomas Augustine Mullett and his brother Frederick William Mullett). It was located near Washington, DC’s Mount Vernon Square and operated for a mere three years, closing in 1913. It later served as a saloon, restaurant, light factory, coffee roasters, and a number of industrial uses. It was demolished in 1982.
Its facade was made of pressed sheetmetal and coveed in stud lighting, as in many nickelodeons.
