The Nickelodeon's

Movies were thought to be a demeaning term to call it, instead Americans dubbed them photoplays. Eventually as the theater's began charging a Nickel for their movies shown, these theaters were dubbed "Nickelodeon's".

It took only a year for hundreds of Nickelodeon theaters to emerge. In 1907 there were over 2,500 theaters, making this a very successful business.
