In its issue of January 1, 1916, trade journal The Moving Picture World said that W.D. Scoville’s Idle Hour Theatre had become the first all-night movie house between the Great Lakes and the Rocky Mountains. The theater ran a continuous program from nine o'clock each morning until six o'clock the following morning.

The Idle Hour Theatre was demolished in 1924 to make way for a retail store building.
