According to an article on early theatres in Weston in the Exponent Telegram of December 27, 2020, the Hollywood opened in October 1935.

There is no N Main St in Weston, but there is a N Main Ave.

An advertising booklet for Weston from the late 1940s says the Camden was showing movies daily, while the Hollywood had weekly specials.

An inventory of historic buildings in Weston prepared for the NRHP said that the Barnes Building at 241 N. Main Street, built in 1925, was remodeled to accommodate a movie theater in the 1930s, and that the theater closed in the 1950s. It must have been the Hollywood Theatre. At the time the inventory was prepared the building was still standing, with its marquee still intact, but I believe it has since been demolished.

The last year the Hollywood Theatre was listed in the Film Daily Yearbook was 1956.
