There’s a vacant lot between a drum shop and an empty building (formerly the Shaughnessy theater), that’s where Idle Hour/ Center Theater used to be. It’s on the south side of Main Street.
I enjoyed going here much more when it was still a Hoyts. It was the first stadium seating theater on the cape, built when the Cape Cod Mall was rennovated in 1999, and was my favorite hangout for several years. In 2003, I went on a two week trip to Europe. When I left it was still the familiar Hoyts Hyannis, when I came back, it was a Regal. Too bad Hoyts went out of buisness, the service, prices, and quality of the moviegoing experience were much better under then. It now has a much more “commerical/ big business” feel and has deteiorated rapidly. They recently repainted a lot of the theater interiors and hallways from their peeling red and blue (Hoyts colors) to Teal (a Regal Color.)
