I believe the Boulevard Theatre operated later than 1975. I remember when I was in college in 1978, it was showing adult films. I remember the titles on the marquee, because a group of us drove past it and laughed at the titles – “Hot Date” and “Lively Lover”.

I saw “THE MUSIC MAN” here and went back in about 1990 and without an address I think I went into the building and at that time it was a Drug Store.

CT could use photos, past and present. inside and out, and more info.

7720 Hampton Boulevard is now a Blockbuster Video store. I don’t know if it is the same building that housed the theater or not. As a post-war theater, it could have been built back from the street as part of a small shopping center, which is what the current building is.

Any photos of this theater? I only remember seeing the re-issue of the Columbia serial THE BATMAN (they were cashing-in on the popularity of the TV show in the 1960s) and of seeing DEEP THROAT (upon my 18th birthday in 1972 … it was my first porno film) there. I’m sure I’ve forgotten much more entertaining fare there but memory is sometimes sketchy.

This opened on July 3rd, 1945 despite the building restriction due to the war. Grand opening ad posted.
