The top photo in this link shows the 4th Avenue Theatre in the late `70’s. Plenty more cool pics too, if anyone is from there.

DavidZornig commented about North Station Cinema I on Jul 20, 2017 at 5:24 pm

1974 photo added courtesy of the Dirty Old Boston Facebook page. Films on the marquee were released in 1969 & `70, though neither were pornography films. So it appears North Station Cinema 1 was also trying to be a revival house.
