“The museum is always looking for volunteers to serve as tour guides, called ‘docents’,” said Gerry Kern, chairman of the museum’s board. “The docents should be willing to learn more about the museum’s mission and history, and then explain the peculiarities of the museum to visitors.”
The historic Warner Cascade Theater is located in the recognized historic structure where, on February 2, 1907, the Warner Brothers opened their very first theater – The Cascade – which can seat just 99 patrons with chairs borrowed from a local funeral home. The company launched the careers of the four most iconic brothers in cinema, Harry, Albert, Sam and Jack.
The brothers, who grew up in Youngstown, chose New Castle as their starting point for their business because of their success in showing Edison’s “The Great Train Robbery” at the Lawrence County Fair.
