In November of 1972 the Lido was playing a trashy double bill of “Blue Money” & “LA Lover” both featuring buxom beauties in the ad. They were distributed by Marvin Films (who sadly booked many of their films into the Rivoli in its final months) and were unrated. To tease potential customers they used the catch line “almost X” :)

If anybody can remember the name of any longtime employees/managers of this theatre, please let me know. Particularly interested in Managers/Projectionists from the 1950’s.

Thanks
