The Avon 7 was one of a number of so called “mini cinemas” that opened in converted retail or office space in the late 1960’s and early ‘70’s. Like all of its “mini” cousins in the Times Square area, the Avon 7 featured hard core pornography. Located in the old Studebaker Building, the cinema lasted well into the 1980’s and possibly into the early '90’s.
Avon ran a number of other porn houses in NYC over the years, including the Avon 42, the Avon-on-Love and the Avon-at-the-Hudson. Sometime after the Avon 7 closed, the space was converted to restaurant use and operated for a number of years as Pommes Frites – an establishment specializing in French fried potatoes.
The Studebaker building was recently demolished to make way for a high-rise condo complex known as 1600 Broadway (the Studebaker’s main address).
Any additional information about the Avon 7 would be greatly appreciated.
