The Studio Theatre was a small adult theatre located in, of all places, a neighborhood shopping center, the Park Crest Village Shopping Center. It opened in March 1969.
It was a storefront entrance (aluminum and glass doors) with a tiny lobby that sold an extremely small amount of popcorn, soda and candy. The “office” was basically part of the concession stand, and if I remember right, the rear wall of it was also the projection booth.
You entered the theatre through an ancient gold drapery. There was an aisle immediatley in front of you, with about 50 seats on either side, but it may have been smaller.
I’m embarrassed to say, I went there with my high school buddies a few times, (they never checked IDs). I only mention the place at all, because, such as it was, it was a theatre, and someone, somewhere, might want to know something about it.
It opened about 1968 or so and ran X-rated film through most of the 1970’s until cable and VCRs made it cost prohibitive.
It existed because the owners of the shopping center, the Ferris’s, wanted it there. When it closed, they converted the property into an ice cream parlor called, I think, the Ferris Wheel.
