In 1907, Sam, Harry, Jack and Albert Warner, opened their first permanent theatre, the Cascade Theatre, in the then thriving city of New Castle, Pennsylvania. It was a humble beginning with a white sheet on a far wall, a primitive, well used Edison projector and folding chairs borrowed from a local funeral parlor. It was to be the inaugural step on a path that would lead to a Theatre, Film Distribution and Motion Picture Production empire.

Established almost two decades ago as a 501 (c)(3) non-profit charitable corporation, The Historic Warner Cascade Theatre Museum is dedicated to promoting the iconic history of the Warner Film Empire and the city “Where it all began”.
