The theatre was located on the 1400 block of Main Street in Columbia. At one time Main Street had a theatre on each block for six blocks. It was originally built in 1909 as the Lyric Theatre. In 1915 it became the second Pastime Vaudeville Theatre, later becoming the Imperial Theatre. It was a great looking old style theatre and was a pleasure to start my training as assistant manager and returning a few years later as manager.
I sure wish I had some pictures, as this was truly a great old style theatre with two balconies. The top balcony had its own entrance next to the main entrance and concession stand for African-Americans.
