This venue whilst known as the Paris ( along with the Nob Hill in San Francisco & Vista in Hollywood) hosted the World Premiere of the Wakefield Poole movie “Take One”– this took place on May 25, 1977. An advert from that has been uploaded to the photo section.

To actually get back to the historical value and actual information that this site was intended for.

Iconic gay director Wakefield Poole held a three screen world premiere of his “Take One” on May 25, 1977. It was here, also at the Paris and Nob Hill in San Francisco.

Ad from the world premiere added to photos.

That’s truly fascinating Steven. Amazing how some of those comments magically disappear, but the drivel in Rockaway and 66th & Broadway are allowed to fester like a cold sore from the lip.

The sad part of it is , if 80% of those who came in here bitching and moaning about the bleeping curtains actually went there, spent money on a consistent basis- it just might still be open.

Be thankful at least part of the venue is remaining. I’ll presume that the new owners are keeping parts of the theatre’s grandeur and not tearing it down as has been the fate of many iconic theaters on Manhattan #priorities.

Thanks for your great photos steven and the time you took to post them. I attended on 12/26 and took some photos as well. I enjoyed the lobby shots and of course presentation and alcohol beverages. Can’t wait to make this a regular stop on my SF vacations.

Wow, all the time I spent in Lefty O'Douls and I had no clue.

The Marina is a twin, both screens are offering digital projection.

I made a return to the Nob Hill in November of 2013. This was on a Saturday evening for the live show with 2 stars- Kieron Ryan and JR Matthews. During their show, Kieron brought up his boyfriend from the audience to join in.

It was a fun night and interesting program to say the least. Other dancers performed before and after the headliners.

There were women in attendance as well and in the audience- Myself and other male members of the audience were uncomfortable about their being there. But legally- they can not be kept out.

it’s a shame it is no longer there. Green Acres seemed to be the place to be!

A much needed update required here. After some “unpleasantness” the Pink Diamonds closed.

The Power Exchange sex club (formerly from Otis Street in SOMA) now makes it’s ‘home’ here. I’d guess it has been doing so since sometime in 2010. Seems to be still going strong today, as there was a Yelp review posted up on 5/30/13.

I’ve not been there since the Campus days- partly due to it’s location and it’s newer incarnations aren’t my “thing”

quite a historic venue this. The GEVI lists this venue as the first to show “softcore gay porn” back in 1968.
