OTD in 1907

On this day in 1907 Louis B. Mayer opens his first movie theater in Haverhill, MA. Later in 1917 he founded the precursor of MGM Studios. As head of production for the new MGM, Louis B. Mayer made it the most successful motion picture studio in the world, and was the only one to pay dividends throughout the Great Depression of the 1930s.
