In 1905, Harry sold his bicycle shop and joined his brothers in their fledgling film business.<br><br> With the money Harry made from selling the bicycle shop, the three brothers were able to purchase a building in New Castle, Pennsylvania. They would use this building to establish their first theater, the Cascade. The Cascade was so successful that the brothers were able to purchase a second theater in New Castle.
