Pool tables on a high mezanine overlooked pin-ball machines and other assorted arcade games that lined wainscotted walls of the Palace Recreation Parlor and Newstand. Located in arcade rear was a cute cinema facade with a tracer lighted marquee and ornate box office that lead into a dark backroom where 16mm stag loops were shown.

If you have further info on this small adult cinema please feel free to tell about it here.

Stag films shown in those days would be considered dull by todays standards. They were nothing more than T&A erotica, or burly-Q reels featuring strip queens who took off a little more than usual.
Old timers say there were several of this type of news stand along Reno Street, but those back rooms were'nt theatres. Instead Reno arcades had ancient peep show machines where customers could peer through a viewfinder to watch 3D adult films.
