Liberty Ave in the 70s was porn alley! Anything you wanted. Theatres, adult arcades,where you had to be 18 and you paid a quarter to enter the adult arcade section through a turnstile. And maybe because I was young,it never seemed all that dangerous. Ah youth!

I admit it, in the 1970s as a college student I paid visits to both these theatres. The things that went on, all I can say is WOW!

Penthouse I & Penthouse II was a twin 16mm porn theater in the early ‘70s. I for straight, & II for gay male films. New owners from NYC added stages lighting and sound for strippers and the occassional live sex act. A third theater was added to the third floor, and that building became a live sex multi-plex with 25 cent movie booths to boot. With the Bizarre, Liberty, Art Cinema, the Edison hotel, and the one near the bus station, and several more across the rivers, Pittsburgh was a “pornocopia” of fleshly entertainment. Thank God it’s all gone!
