The 260-seat Casino Theater was an early nickelodeon in the East Liberty area of Pittsburgh. It was sold in May of 1912 and refreshed retaining its Casino nameplate though now self-designated as “the coolest theater in the East End.”. It relaunched after a change of management and a refresh as the Busy Theater beginning on April 27, 1913. The Busy apparently did not live up to its moniker and was converted to a restaurant in 1914.
