Adam Theatre

The New Adam Theater opened November 26, 1973 with two gay adult movies:“Bruised Angels” & “Male Animal”. By 1976 it was the Adam Theatre, one of many gay porn theatres operating in the city. This one was just south of Market Street in the Tenderloin district. After closing it went into retail use.

In 2023 the building was being used by the Sixth Street Homeless Storage Facility.

Mid-1977 saw the Adam Theatre’s lavender storefront facade redone in a multicolor “high tacky” motif, and the name had been changed to Fantasy Cinema. Near the end of that same year the concern folded. The cinema sat vacant for over a year with ‘For Lease’ posted across the small marquee. By early-‘79 the space was returned to retail use.

Newspapers showed it as the “New Adam” for awhile.
