This shopping center theater opened on June 23, 1971 as the Shirley Duke Twins and showing largely arthouse fare, the opening movies being “Shinbone Alley” and “The Wild Rovers”. In the mid-1970’s, the theaters turned to showing hardcore XXX films. (One of the screens showed “The Opening of Misty Beethoven” for a record 103 weeks!) A third screen was added in 1975 and the theater would have two screens playing second-run mainstream films and the third screen showing porn. In 1980, the theater was renamed the Foxchase 3.
The theatre continued, one screen showing second-run arthouse fare (with an occasional Bollywood film) and the other two screens show XXX films on video. It was closed in 2005 and torn down as the shopping center it sits in (Foxchase Center) will be replacing it with a big box retailer and a supermarket.
As far as I know, it was the last porn theater operating in the Washington DC metropolitan area.
