We used to frequent the Nemo as kids in the 50’s. In those days they had a Children’s Section with a uniformed matron to keep the kids in line. Sometimes they’d even hit the kids to maintain order. They always showed double features for 35 cents going up eventually to 50 cents. We’d just go in and watch what was on till it started over again. It was a big theatre with one of those Come on in, it’s Kool inside! signs. Great on hot summer days. We were all saddened when it became a Daitch Shopwell.

The Nemo stood at the south east corner of 110th and Broadway. The Rite Aid is across Broadway on the south west corner.

As per Flame’s comment of 8/3/2009 the Nemo became a Daitch Shopwell. A similar fate of the old Stoddard Theater on 90th and Broadway (also a Lamb house)which too became a Daitch. The Nemo Daitch became a D'agostino’s and then the structure was eventually torn down. The Nemo was entirely gutted. A demolition worker allowed me to peek in after I convinced him the structure had been a theater at one point. The new building on the site was completed in 2004.
