The Pennway opened on Pennsylvania Avenue just north of Flatlands Avenue. It was a small single-level theater that was part of an outdoor shopping center. When it opened in the 1960s, it ran first run fare, but the neighborhood wasn’t great and soon it was being run by the same owner of the XXX Cinema Kings Highway and was also showing XXX.
When Starrett City, a huge apartment complex, was built and opened in the 1970s, the Pennway reverted to Hollywood fare, hoping to attract the apartment complex’s population. But this never happened, and the theater tried porn again. The advent of XXX video killed the theater, and it closed, only to be retrofitted into retail use.
