The Rialto was known as the Idle Hour in the 1920s-1930s. The former Eagle Hotel (demolished) can be seen at the right. Spences/The Imperial Hotel can be seen at the left.

This photo of the Idle Hour bears a striking resemblance to what would later be called the Garden, which was later called the Harrison. See theaters in West Chester, PA, the Harrison, to see the still extant facade as of 2007. The semi-circle facade curve above the “Idle Hour” lettering still exists on the old Harrison facade. The Rialto seems to have been another theater (next door?) altogether.
