Tiny pupose built twins, these theatres were intended to be a subrun neighborhood location. Due to their location they became first-run eventually and then due to being in an unincorporated section of town, stumbled into undisturbed runs of “Deep Throat” and “The Devil in Miss Jones”. A policy change to show “Star Wars” first run also proved a good idea.

This 1985 lawsuit mentions a twin theater at 2315 North 60th Avenue, Hollywood, Florida, but I don’t know if it’s the Cine 1& 2:

Ken, that has to be it.

The Cine Twin opened in 1971. Due to their success with x-rated films they were eventually taken over by the South Florida version of the Pussycat chain (Leroy Griffith) and operated a the Pussycat until at least 1996 and maybe later.

These were the crappiest screens in Hollywood back in the mid-late 70s, yet they seemed to get all the blockbusters. I remember seeing Star Wars here several times, as well as Grease (I recall my parents taking me to Grease opening night and entering the theater only to find it had been oversold and there were no seats available. We got our money back and drove across town to see Jaws 2 instead). Both versions of Saturday Night Fever played here, as well. Saw everything here from Corvette Summer to The Wiz to The Black Hole, Fade to Black, Motel Hell (by 1980, it had stopped attracting too many big-budget flicks). There was a great drugstore next door where we’d load up on snacks before we went to the movie.

From “DEEP THROAT” to “STAR WARS” Strange they would change formats and even stranger that moviegoers would even want to go into a XXX rated theatre even after the format change.
