Information for this tour was contributed by Konrad Schiecke.

The Idle Hour Theatre, originally located on North Chicago Street, moved to its South Chicago Street location in 1916. In 1929, it was renamed the Rosslyn, and again renamed in 1939 as the Time. The theatre closed in the 1970s. The building still stands, housing a small business and an apartment.
