The Secrets Jack London theatre and sex arcade shut down permanently early in August 2016. The reports are the entire block will be cleared and condo/apartments will be built there.

The closing of the theatre ends a long tradition of casual sex in East Bay auditoriums showing pornography which began as a commom phenomenon in the late 1960s and peaked in the mid seventies when there were around a dozen such theatres in the east bay. Apparently now the closest thing is the bay men’s bath house, no venues for women and hetero-couples

Architecturally it is no loss.
