theatretime lull

Dear all
Please kindly tell me what's meant by "theatertime lull" in the following context, taken from "Charley Anderson" in "The Big Money" by Dos Passos:
Time: 1920s
Location: A speak-easy around Park Avenue -East 52nd Street in New York
The speak had cleared for the theatertime lull.
Does it mean that the interval between the acts in the nearby theater had finished?
