This theater operated (very briefly) in 1982 or 1983 and was called the Log Cabin. It had been a dance hall. Walnut Properties )Pussycat’s parent company) opened this and ran foreign films (non-sex) for a couple weeks and then switched to XXX fare. The San Luis Obispo county shariff’s office raided this theater within 2 weeks. It then re-opened and tried showing XXX fare again and the shariff’s office raided it again within a week. Then the county yanked its operating permit & then it went out of business.

The theater was right outside the San Luis Obispo city limits on Highway 227.

San Luis Obispo county did have a bit of an anti-pornography stance during this period as a local preacher also got a theater in Pismo Beach to stop showing XXX films at midnight as well as most stores that carried magazines to quit carrying Playboy, Penthouse, Hustler, etc. (For a time, only two magazine dealers would carry these, one in downtown SLO by the Mission, and one in Pismo Beach.)
