A wonderful set of 150 seat mini-cinemas run by Mid States Theatres. Located in the same building as the Playboy Club back when that meant class. Almost always provocative films. It opened July 30, 1969 with both screens playing “Midnight Cowboy”. Other films to play here include “Last Tango In Paris”, “Lenny” and more. “Billy Jack” had it’s world premiere there.
This great location is now a restaurant. And I don’t know how good it is, but it was a wonderful theatre. The lobby of the building it was located in would buzz with excitement on a Saturday night in the early-1970’s, with crowds lining up for the movie and people waiting for elevators to wisk them up to the Playboy Club. It was like Barbie Benton days.
