Why was it called San Francisco?

The excellent documentary “Inside Deep Throat” contains some archival footage of the August ‘72 raid on the San Francisco Adult Movies I described in the intro above.

Here’s a screenshot image I snagged from a cable TV showing of the film showing a police crowbar about to pry some of the signage off of the facade above the cinema’s entrance.

Here’s another image of signage coming down from above the outdoor box office. Other footage of this raid (too blurry and quick cut for me to capture) includes a policeman ripping down a crudely handwritten sign (in colored marker) on thin paper from a vestibule sidewall advertising the “stereo sound” and “bright bold living color” adults-only presentations within.
