The 6th Avenue Arts Cinema was first a short-lived arts theater which opened in 1971. Less than a year later, it shifted to an all-adult film run with usage of a single 16mm projector.

The Cinema closed its doors for a few days on January 5, 1972 due to four employees arrested by Nashville Police for charges on obscene material showings in the theater. Nearly 24 hours after their arrests, all four employees left with a $1,000 bond.

It’s not the only time charges were made from the theater, but there were more than at least a few reports of employees being arrested at the theater among a couple of others from adult material.

In June 1974, the theater’s name changed to Fantasy Cinema to match in on the theater’s explicative format. This didn’t last very long and closed in 1978.
