missmelbatoast commented about Three Ball Cinema on Jul 22, 2010 at 10:22 pm

Screen three tended to push the limits by showing gay porn, along with 1950s gay beefcake films represented in this spicy montage.
Law enforcement didn’t bother to bust gay screenings, for to do so would be the same as admitting that queens actually dwelt within “butch” OKC.

Google maps street view shows this theatre building still stands behind a false front. A large stagehouse can also be seen.
Across the street and down a little, that corner building looks to be another auditorium with a stagehouse.
