Previous Names: Eden Theatre
One of a few theatres in the formerly vibrant Peebles Corner business district in the Walnut Hills neighborhood of Cincinnati. Opened as the Eden Theatre in 1939.
Later known as the Guild Theatre, it was remodelled around 1948 by architectural firm F & Y Building Service. It was long known as an art theatre, and is most famous for being the venue where Russ Meyer’s “Vixen” had opened before being shut down by the city vice squad, leading to a long and very expensive lawsuit filed by Meyer against the city.
When last spotted, the building was still standing and serving as a TV repair shop. An intriguing, abstract painting (I suppose meant to suppose artistic film expression) still adorns its visible side wall, albeit in extremely degraded condition.
