Built in 1937 and designed by architect A.B. Sedgley as a market building. It was later converted into the Hawaiian Gardens Theatre. By July 1970 it had been renamed Adam & Eve Theatre, playing adult themed movies. Taken over by porno filmmaker Carlos Tobalino it reopened as the X Theatre on November 11, 1974, to showcase adult films. The opening movie was the world premiere presentation of “Sexual Ecstacy of the Macumba” starring John Fox with Linda Lovelace & Marilyn Chambers. It was later twinned and varied its programs at times, running XXX in one side and Hollywood double bills on the other. The X 1 & 2 Theaters was closed in 1992. The building was then mainly used for storage. The auditorium was demolished in August 2016 and the facade was demolished in March 2017.
