I believe the Boulevard Theatre operated later than 1975. I remember when I was in college in 1978, it was showing adult films. I remember the titles on the marquee, because a group of us drove past it and laughed at the titles – “Hot Date” and “Lively Lover”.

I saw “THE MUSIC MAN” here and went back in about 1990 and without an address I think I went into the building and at that time it was a Drug Store.

7720 Hampton Boulevard is now a Blockbuster Video store. I don’t know if it is the same building that housed the theater or not. As a post-war theater, it could have been built back from the street as part of a small shopping center, which is what the current building is.
