The Brooklyn Theatre Index (published in 2010) notes that the Idle Hour Theatre briefly existed at this location from 1914 to 1915. This is the only information contained in that book or, as far as I am aware, anywhere else.
The theater’s name evokes a very different and long gone era. Cinema Treasure actually contains the name of 11 Idle Hour’s, including one that was situated in Long Island City. All of them opened near the beginning of the last century.
While currently situated in Broolyn, along the Queens border, the Idle Hour was actually situated in Queens during its brief existence. The current border was only created in 1925. This represents the obverse of the Parthenon Theatre’s situation, which began its life in Brooklyn and then "emigrated" into Queens.
