Partial view of the lobby of the Fair, April 7, 2017. After I snapped the picture I saw the man in the ticket booth give me a strange look. I made sure that I took the picture when no one was exiting or entering to protect their privacy.

Mr. Katz, I mean did the church owners let you come inside?

I’m glad I was able to visit a few times during the porn era. It had a large auditorium. I was hopeful, until reading this, that it might re-open.

Darn, I wish I had gone into these theatres when they were still open but I was afraid.

I’m sure we can say goodbye to this theatre. The land is very valuable. Another damn apartment will replace it.

I went to the New Adonis (for research). I’m glad I got the chance to see the old theatre before it was closed. The balcony was still open.

The interior of what is now Shopper’s World looks like it was a movie theatre.

I went there today for the first time. I think I was in screen two. The air conditioning was not hardly on and it was somewhat warm in the theatre. And there was a musty smell.
