One of Sioux Falls' early vaudeville and movie houses was the Olympia Theater. It opened in 1909 and originally had 250 seats to fill. Manager Otis Adams made sure all films were accompanied by a five-piece orchestra made up of his children. It was still the Olympic Theater in 1915. By 1926 it had been renamed Royal Theater. By 1941 it had been renamed Time Theater and was operated by Paramount Pictures Inc. through their subsidiary John Friedl. The Time Theater was still in operation in the early-1950’s.
