Again, my memories are brief on this place, but it was in downtown Birmingham during the 1970’s. There was a big numeral “4” on the side of the building and I think they also showed some of the controversial movies of that era.

Once the place closed, it became a car dealership.

I worked as projectionist at the Studio 4 from 1975-77. It was a small art house that showed mainly foreign films. It’s business went to the newly constructed Maple theatres nearby. The owner/operators also ran the studio north theatre in Ferndale, an adult theatre. The coup-de-grace to the Four was their attempt to change the bill of fare at the Four to porn, something the city of Birmingham would not tolerate (Birmingham is a very upscale community).

That would be about right. It was a small single screen theatre.
