I found this theater also listed at 3192 Adeline Street in an early city directory.

3192 Adeline Steet is also listed as the address for the South Berkeley Photo Theatre. I also saw an address of 2643 Shattuck Avenue for the Pastime. There is a lot of inconsistency in old city directories!

This one (2483 Shattuck) is “Closed” and quite likely “Closed/Demolished,” as this approximate spot is where a parking lot stood for many years; a building was fairly recently constructed there.

This was a single-screen theater.

This was probably a nickelodeon.

The August 7, 1915, issue of The Moving Picture World said that the Pastime Theatre in South Berkeley had been sold to J. Ashkenazy by W. M. Clark. the house was still in operation in 1916, when the September 16 issue of the same publication said that E. Staub had purchased it from J. Scotti. These are the only references to the Pastime that I’ve been able to find in publications from the period.
