In 1959, the President Follies Theatre was operating as one of the last real ‘Strip Tease’ parlours. It had a live three-piece band. It was not like any of the nude dancing or lap dancing parlours of today, but featured real strip tease, and was great place for college boys to hang out.

Yes, I’m sure it was. And it was probably due to pretty faced strippers and tough bouncers. The counterpart, Market Street Cinema, boasts gang-bangers, drug sales and consumption, rampant stripper-customer sex, rip offs and the occasional visit from one of San Francisco’s Finest to ascertain that “everything is o.k.”.
