According to old maps, the site was on the southeast corner of 58th and Avenue Q. Part of the Country Inn and Suites its on the old site. The field just west of it seems to be the rest of that site.

In its last years it showed porn flicks and the former motel just behind it always had many on the second floor walkway watching free – who needed the sound?!

Here is the correct location (the triangle area was the theater):

The address has to be wrong. It would be more like the 1500 – 1700 block of 58th. I remember the circle as a little kid. 2517-55th is a neighborhood of houses, and is just west of University Ave. The Circle, was right East of Ave. Q and 58th Street.
