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.
