Casino Royale was an adult theatre operating in the ‘Red Light District’ (prior to its gentrication) of Washington, DC prior to its closing down.

I have no further information of the theatre prior to to its porn life or post closure. Going on google maps does give me the image of office building on either corner, which leads me to believe that the building housing the theatre was razed long ago.

Casino Royale Theatre was not a “real” theatre.. it was a porn house that had no beginnings as a legitimate movie house. In the 60s 14th St was lined with nightclubs. The Casino Royale was on the second floor on the NW corner of 14th & H St NW (the Speakeasy was on the first floor. The Casino Royale was a rock & roll club that catered to GIs on liberty. As Viet Nam wound down so did the GIs and the club was turned into a “theatre” for a few years.
