Piper's Opera House -- July 11, 2018

Moving Picture Weekly, 20-July-1918
Piper's Opera House is a famous theater in Virginia City, Nevada. The third version of the opera house was built in 1878. The first two versions burned. Many famous performers including Lily Langtry and Al Jolson played Piper's. Daniel Connor started showing movies there in 1910.  It still stands on B Street.  I took the photo below in July, 2011.
