This small cinema came into operation around 1973. It was located on Washington Street near the corner of Stuart Street, across from the Stuart Theatre. It was the subject of a court battle attempting to shut it down during its showing of “Devil in Miss Jones,” the print of which was seized.

Back in the 1970s, the Golden Age of porno movies in cinemas (before the advent of VHS tapes for home use), there were a number of small XXX-rated cinemas like this one set up in storefronts, much like the “Nickelodeons” back in the early days of movies. I, very snobbishly, never considered them to be “real theatres” so I didn’t pay much attention to them back then. I have only a very vague memory of this one.

This little Capri downtown is not to be confused with the Capri theaters run by Sack Theatres in two locations on Huntington Ave.
