Pussycat Theatre

The building dated from 1913 and was a garage in the 1920’s thru 1940’s. In the early-1950’s it was converted into office space for a real estate company. The Pussycat Theatre was opened on June 12, 1970 with “Trader Horne”. It was operated by Vincent Miranda for his Walnut Properties Company, screening adult movies. In August 1995 it was renamed Asia Theatre and became an art house theatre screening Iranian movies, but this was for only a brief period of time.

It reverted back to an adult movie policy and closed in February 1998. The building has been gutted internally and is now a restaurant named Buca di Beppo.
