The most notorious theater in Portland in the 70s. It showed straight porn in cinemas 1 and 2 and gay porn in cinema 3. It was downtown in the sleaziest area of the city.

Just went to where this old theatre once stood. Its gone. The address doesn’t even exist anymore. A limo service building stands there. The address goes from 508 then to 540.

I seem to remember in the 70s they also ran offbeat art films. I’m certain I saw Polanski’s REPULSION there one Friday night, circa ‘71.
