Cinema 55

Located on Route 66 in the Apple Valley Shopping Center. This was opened as a Jerry Lewis Cinema. It played first run movies, then art house before slipping into adult porn. It was closed in the mid-1980’s.

Today, the lobby is in use as a Subway, while the auditorium has been split into a few businesses, including a Chinese restaurant.

For much of my youth this was a porno theatre that started showing THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW from the late 1970s thru the mid 1980s. I saw my first XXX movie “DIRTY BLONDES” here in 1983. Around 1984-1985 it was converted to a second run house showing commercial Hollywood movies. I seem to remember the place closing for good in the mid 1980s.
