Well the Art theaters are gone. They’re cleared out, but the marquee still stands and building for rent.

This was never operated by Pussycat. Pussycat operated the Guild on Market Street (about a block away) during the time this played XXX films). The Guild became a Pussycat in 1972, and changed its name to Pussycat Guild before just calling itself Pussycat in 1973. The Art 1 & 2 I first started seeing ads for was around 1972.

The vertical sign looks a little like an ex ‘Pussycat’ sign in the photo here:

The Deep Throat/Devil in Miss Jones bill played here for over 10 years!

Today, it is an Adult Bookstore. Another storefront theater.

Apparently still laboring under the “adult sex shop” banner, this is now called the Art Theatre and is still open.
