              Hour Theatre Darliington Md
For the longest time, I could only find one reference for the Idle Hour Theatre in Darlington Maryland ( Harford County ) . In 1928 through 1931, the theatre sat 200. Further research has found the theatre building is still standing, as seen above .

      Located at 1104-6 Main Street -  Built in 1925 , an early Commercial Style Shed Building , covered in White Stucco , built when the nearby  Conowingo Dam when up -  had housed Stores - is locally known as the Mick Building.
   The name Idle Hour was used around the Country for movie houses, although I only found one other Idle Hour in Maryland ( so far ) , the Idle Hour on Howard Street in downtown Baltimore.
