I forgot to mention that I saw “A Clockwork Orange” at the Ambassador with my boyfriend (now husband). I had forgotten it was an “X.”
raysson, thanks so much. you’re a veritable gold mine of info.
I recall the Ambassador with great fondness. I went to there every week of my life, practically, starting about 1960 as a child. I took the bus so I could see the cartoons they ran on Saturdays for kids, then as a teen, I hit every major movie release. My older sister worked in the ticket booth in the late 1950s.
I asked about the X-rated date in trying to put a date on a piece of Ambassador memorabilia I bought from a collectibles store — a card they used to put in the window of the ticket booth, stating the movie was X-rated and for age 17 and older. So thanks again for that.
I am trying to find out the year The Ambassador showed its first X-rated movie. I recall it made quite a stir, upsetting many Raleighites.
