The Jollo Electric Theatre Company was a circuit of early motion picture locations in Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas and Colorado. The Jollo Moving Picture Theatre in Bradshaw appears to have had a short life opening in October of 1908. It launched in the Ancient Order of United Workmen (A.O.U.W.) built in the late-19th Century.

The Jollo appeared to have a subleasing or co-op deal with the AOUW. It was run by Earl J. Dean who also ran the Jollo Theatre in York. But Dean would end the agreement and run the more successful York location into World War I. The A.O.U.W Hall became home to the Independent Order of Odd Fellows (IOOF) after World War I.
