Abstract

This paper expands on previous accounts of nickelodeon history by focusing on one specific neighborhood, the South End of Boston, and how several local theaters catered to the area's ethnic and immigrant population. Special attention is given to the live portion of the bill at the Theatre Comique, Columbia, Castle Square and Back Bay theaters, particularly to their individualized presentation of musical performance.
