Architects: Max Hirsch
Previous Names: Skillman Theatre
The name suggests that the Pleasant Hour Theatre was started as a nickelodeon and was then converted into a full-fledged cinema. Operating as a movie theatre by 1910, it was renamed Peerless Theatre in 1914. In 1917, a new brick facade was added to the theatre, designed by architect Max Hirsch.
In 1932 it was renamed Skillman Theatre, but closed in 1936. Like many such pioneer neighborhood houses, the old Pleasant Hour Theatre fell victim to newer and classier theatres, the arrival of sound movies, and the Great Depression.
It was converted into a store, and in recent years has been in use as a church.
