A history of Maysville theaters that was included in the NRHP nomination form for the Russell Theatre says that the Hollywood Theatre opened in April, 1909, as the Pastime Theatre. It was located at 113 West Second Street, in the Knights of Pythias building, which was across the street from the Washington Opera Theatre. The Pastime Theatre had 225 seats.

In 1926 the house changed hands, and was renamed the Hollywood Theatre. It was sold again, in 1938, to the operators of the Washington Opera Theatre, who closed it in 1941.

As near as I can figure, the Pastime/Hollywood Theatre was in one of the two buildings in this Street View. Both are across the street from the Washington Opera Theatre, which is where the Hollywood was supposed to be. The three-story building is occupied by a business called Anna’s Backstage, but I can’t find its address. The two-story building looks vacant.

The Pastime was in the two story building with the bay window upstairs, as can be seen in the 1922 photo I just uploaded. For the time being, those who want to see the way it looks now will have to use the Street View I linked to in my previous comment, as Google has for some reason given our page a map and view of Covington, Kentucky, sixty miles from Maysville.
