A few corrections:

The current address is now 3723 Gate City Boulevard, Greensboro, NC. They changed the name of the street a couple of years ago.

The actual location of the theater is now a beauty supply store. If you look at this image (https://goo.gl/maps/nAzGLmg4NYt), you can see the traditional “theater” look with the front area used for sales and the house being the raised area right behind it.

This theater has been demolished. A Walgreens and other speciality stores now sits where the movie theater once was.

The name of this theater in the 1989-90 ads was “High Point Road Cinema”, which was most likely the final name of this theater.

This was most likely the location of the Trans-Lux Inflight Cine' in Greensboro rather than the location given for the “Greensboro Theater”. The location listed on the Greensboro Theater page is actually that of the Sedgefield Crossing $2 Cinema, which is the only theater ever built at that address. Also, Trans-Lux built all of its North Carolina Inflight Cine’s adjacent to Zayre stores (except Kinston; no Zayre there, Trans-Lux built next to Woolco in that town). The Royal Cine location was still operating as a theater as late as 1990, but under a different name and no longer porn. Newspaper ads from 1989-90 mentioned a discount cinema at High Point and Holden Roads “near Ames” (Ames had bought out Zayre at this time); most likely the Trans-Lux Inflight/Greensboro Theater is the same cinema as the Royal Cine.
