A Movie for a Nickel

Way before the TV network and even before the Ryan and Tatum O'Neal film, the word nickelodeon meant a small neighborhood theater where people would gather to see a movie. The cost?

Movies were comedic sketches, animal acts, or vaudeville acts that lasted around 15 minutes each.
