Previously a horse stable, this opened as the 299-seat 55th Street Cinema on May 20, 1927. This was a tiny cinema of some reputation that for decades showed first run art house features and special programs.
On 20th December 1968 Andy Warhol’s “Lonesome Cowboys” starring Joe Dallesandro had its New York Premiere and played at the 55th Street Playhouse from May 5, 1969. It paved the way for the rest of its life as a X-Rated adult movie theatre, soon to be presenting gay adult movies.
