Nickelodeons were the early motion-picture theaters, so named because admission typically cost a nickel. Nickelodeons offered continuous showings of one- and two-reel films, lasting from 15 minutes to one hour and accompanied by a piano. The success of the Pittsburgh nickelodeon established in 1905 by Harry Davis made it the model for their rapid proliferation throughout the U.S. By 1910 they numbered 10,000, fueling a huge demand for silent films and projection equipment and providing the impetus for the development of the modern motion-picture industry.[*] The heyday of the Nickelodeon lasted less than 10 years. When the studios began making feature-length films, theaters were charged higher rentals. Admission prices climbed to 10-cents or more. Larger, more ornate theaters were built, complete with balconies, carpeting and even proscenium arches. One by one, the nickelodeons either went out of businesses or were renovated to accommodate larger, more sophisticated crowds.[*]
