THE THEATRE FIRST OPENED AS AN ART HOUSE SHOWING CLASSIC MOVIES. IT EVENTUALLY BECAME AN ADULT THEATRE. THE BUILDING AT THE TIME WAS OWNED BY A POLITICAL/LEGAL VIP FROM THE AREA.

AN AMUSEMENT COMPANY TOOK IT OVER AND TURNED IT INTO A X HOUSE. IT RAN AS AN ADULT THEATRE UNTIL IT CLOSED DUE TO VIDEO. ONE FORMER EMPLOYEE GOT MAD AT THE BUSINESS OWNER AND DECIDED TO OPEN HIS OWN X THEATRE. IT WAS QUICKLY SHUT DOWN. AH, THE GOOD OLD DAYS OF EXHIBITION. IT HAD A PIZZA INN RESTAURANT LOCATED IN THE SAME BUILDING, WITH SEPERATE ENTRANCES OF COURSE.

IN DEFENSE OF THE THEATRE, THIS WAS DURING THE TACKY ADVERTISING DAYS RELATED TO THE PORN INDUSTRY. IT NEVER HAD A MARQUEE. ONLY A SIGN WITH THE NAME AND A ONE SHEET OUTSIDE AND A SMALL AD IN THE THEATRE SECTION OF THE GREENVILL NEWS. YOU ACTUALLY HAD TO BE LOOKING FOR THIS THEATRE TO FIND IT.
