As of at least sometime in 2009, it is now home to the Xscape Ultra Premium Lounge. The building is currently owned by Charles Lambert.

Great place for film buffs during its run as the Biograph. Initally it showed only art films and was one screen. They paid the bills by showing DEEP THROAT to huge crowds on weekends. Eventually a second screen was added which sometimes showed porn. There was a big collage of movie photos and posters in the hallway leading to the larger theater to which items were continually added… a visual history of what had been shown there. By 1987 when it closed, the advent of the vcr had taken away much of their audience.
