The August 20, 1910, issue of The Film Index published an article about the four theaters then operating on the block of Madison Street between Dearborn and Clark. It said that the Pastime Theatre had been built “about two years ago”, which would make an opening sometime in the latter part of 1908 likely. With 460 seats, the Pastime was the largest of the four theaters on the block.

The Pastime Theatre Co. also operated a house of the same name on Adams Street, as well as the Victoria Theatre in Logan Square. General manager H.W. Thompson had his office in the Madison Street house.
