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.
