Italian immigrant and theatre magnate during the late 1800s and early decades of the 20th century.
By 1916, he was heralded as the largest individual theatre owner in the world, establishing himself throughout the regional Northeastern United States. Starting with a career in wax sculpting, he quickly moved on to dime museums, curios, variety shows, and ultimately vaudeville theatres and movie palaces.
Sylvester Poli married Rosa Leverone from Genoa, Italy in 1885. Sylvester and Rosa had five children.
He died on Memorial Day, 31 May 1937, at the age of 78 due to pneumonia.
