This November 1948 Time story did not identify the theater, but presumably it was the Comet:

When a movie theater in Angier, N.C. (pop. 1,028) scheduled a sex picture called Mom and Dad (“Bold! Shocking! The Secrets of Sensible Sex”), it was overrun by an unmanageable crowd. Firemen had to wet down the crowd with a hose before the picture could be shown to an all-male audience.
