The Grant-Lee was a long time adult theatre which later turned to commercial fare as the Sharon Cinema (before closing in the late 1980s). It was located at 815 Abbott Blvd. in the Palisade section of Fort Lee. The theatre building still exists as the home to several local retailers and service providers.
(Function can be changed to “Retail.”)
