This theater is unusual because it was built as a porn twin, opening in November 1971. Then, amid a lot of fanfare, became a twin revival theater from 1981. It showed classic double bills and sometimes would play a rarely seen classic for more then a few days. The nice thing about it being a twin was that it gave freedom to revive recent films as double features.
It operated successfully until 1986 when internal problems with its management caused it to close. The theater returned to porn with gay in one twin and straight in the other. When the Times Square cleanup started, the theater closed in 1994 and is now the information and meeting area for the Big Apple Bus Company, which gives tours of the city.
