The Boulevard Theatre opened in 1940 and is listed as being operated by Paramount Pictures Inc. under the subsidiary of S.H. Lynch.

The 1950 F.D.Y. gives the seating capacity and the address given here for the Boulevard Theatre as a single screen. I have a 1977 gay guide book that shows a gay male porno cinema operating at this address named the Kitty Kat Theatre.

In 2009, the building operates as a nightclub, named Black Gold.

This was aka the Pussycat. The Kitty Kat was a short-lived name for screen two.

This theatre was The Pussycat. It showed Deep Throat and The Devil in Ms. Jones for quite sometime. Across the street was the Playboy Club, which closed in the mid 80s and became the Ellis Rubin Law Firm. Mr. Rubin died recently, not sure what is there now.

The Boulevard operated from 1940-1970 at which time it became the Pussycat.

The Kitty Kat appeared in 1973 and became known as the Pussycat-2 in 1975.

Although I am not positive, this may have been the Boulevard.

The Boulevard was being outfitted in mid-1940. The July 6 issue of Boxoffice listed drapes and carpets for the Boulevard among the equipment ordered for various theaters from the Wil-Kin Theatre Supply Co. of Atlanta.

S.A. Lynch, a regional partner of Paramount Theatres, was building the Boulevard, according to another item in the same issue of Boxoffice. The new house was expected to be open later that month.

A four month delay in the expected opening date is pretty drastic, especially in the pre-war period when labor and materials shortages were not yet a problem. I wonder what happened? It wasn’t even a bad hurricane season.

The article does name the architects of the Boulevard as Weed & Reeder (Robert Law Weed and Edwin T. Reeder.)

It appears the Coral opened shortly after, also with major delays. The problem may have been at Paramount Theatres.

The last film I can recall seeing at this theatre was “The Longest Day.” It was someone’s birthday, and we all spent the day.
