If anyone has any stories about going to/ working at this threatre in its adult days, I would love to hear them. I am chronicling the histories of adult theatres in the US. Please contact me at Thanks!

The exterior of the theatre was featured in the film LOVE ME DEADLY (1974)

September 1974 advertised all male films 10 am to 5 am. Gives them a couple of hours to sweep and mop, maybe make some fresh popcorn.

Ken mc are you serious or are you kidding? I guess it really is a “Quickie Theater” if you only got 10 minutes!

I hear that this theater had meters on the seats – 25 cents for each ten minutes…

Come and went so quick, even I missed this one! lol I was in West Hollywood when this was posted as a ‘newest theatre’ and didn’t have internet access, wish I had, as I could have checked out the current status.

Seriously though, doing a web search on this address comes up with a Thai restaurant called The Flowering Tree…selected extract from a web review of the restaurant:
‘…The Flowering Tree will delight your senses….Put on your comfiest brown corduroys and tattered sweater and enjoy a scrumptious earthy…..’

Well!

Haha. I was scrolling through the “newest theater” section because I hadn’t had time to for a while…and how did I know what to expect when I clicked on this one….

Yes, bizarre…no matter how you folks spell it. Another bizarre one is the Climax Theatre in Milwaukee.

Bizzare name, but most likely quite aptly named. No further explanation, please.
