This theatre should have a previous name of Pastime Theatre. The Pastime Theatre was remodeled and opened as the Folly Theatre in December of 1917.

The Folly theater, formerly the Pastime, under the management of Harry LeVan, acting for the Barbour agency, has undergone complete remodeling and now has the appearance of an up to date theater. A new floor has been laid, the ceiling newly plastered, seats rearranged, new scenery installed and the building well heated.
