The Idle Hour Theatre is short-lived. The theater opened its doors on April 13, 1921 with a one-day showing of Marshall Neilan in “Dinty”. This was followed by Charles Chaplin’s “The Kid” a day later. It was first operated by M.E. Church.

The Idle Hour Theatre was originally located on an unknown street but was moved to East Vernon Street in September 1921 for a short period of time before a fire destroyed the Idle Hour Theatre on October 8, 1921. The roof and interior received very serious damage from the fire.

The theater was relocated to a building occupied by Elmer Hughes, and reopened in November 1921 also on East Vernon Street. It was managed by Jason E. Lawhorn.

The Idle Hour Theatre closed a year later in late-1922.
