Sophisticate’s X Twin Cinemas and Adult News, built inside a former appliance dealership, was open from aproximately 1972 till 1978. This was a twin cinema operation located in the rear section of an adult news stand.
Auditorium A showed straight triple feature porn.
Auditorium B was much more creative by booking features that were geared toward gay audiences. B-side usually presented posing strap beefcake films or nude wrestling loops, mixed in with non porn movies such as John Waters films or obscure camp movies like “What’s the Matter with Helen?”.
After the twin cinemas shut down around 1975 the space was converted into arcade video booths and the business was renamed Sophisticate’s X Arcade and Adult Book Shop, which continued in operation for another three years before it was shut down by law enforcement.
The auditorium spaces have been demolished, but the front of the building has been retained and is in retail use.
