The name is incorrect - it was the Valleyodeon (one word) Theatre and it opened in 1907 according to most reports and was still operating in 1915 but appears to have been sold and closed at that time. Harry Winter was the projectionist and operator from its opening to closing and his wife, Gertrude Winter, was the piano player for its entire run. Mr. Winter contends that the Valleyodeon opened not in 1907 but in 1906 and he remained a projectionist in Pittsburgh until 1964 retiring at the Penn Theatre.

I’m not a Pittsburgh expert by any stretch, but this mapping is nowhere close to the former Valleyodeon location which seems by all descriptions to be in the 15214 zip code with the Taggart street name and address changed. Is there some evidence that this was even demolished?
