I was wondering if anyone knew anything about the burlesque entertainer Nickie “The It Girl” Joy who worked at The President Follies in San Francisco. Ms. Joy is currently in the Comcast “Something Weird” free films. Ms. Joy is truely mesmerizing.
What I was impressed most with in the Vogue theater in Pittsburg, California was the huge painting on the lobby wall called “The Horsemen Of The Apocalypse”. Artist unknown. I dropped in during the church’s renovation and it was gone. I used to roam around the Vogue when I was with the cleaning crew around 1964 and I saw the torch job done on the walk-in safe door and the damage the molten metal did to the carpet. At that time the Vogue was already deteriorating and was helped along by the destructive patrons. I’d rather rent a movie and stay home and watch it on my 32 inch lcd. The gang-bangers who loiter around the Brenden theater in Pittsburg and the destruction occuring inside the Brenden along with the loud youth and the candy throwing will soon drive everyone away.
