The films posted by JRS40 seem to be feature films only. All Night Shows are not part of the list. If you can’t figure out the film you are looking for, Grace, a plot description may help.
I remember Bob well.
Sorry to hear about Jerry. I had only heard of him, never met him. I asked my husband about the chimp, again. He was very busy inside the theater but said it was possible that the chimp was part of whatever was going on outside. He personally, never saw one. So, you may both be correct. Glad you enjoyed the All Night Shows. We had a laugh at the mention of Lane Drugs.
A few corrections. First, Playboy never used the spelling “theatre” but theater. Jerry Dukor had left the theater many years before the Naked Ape, my now husband was the manager at the time. There was not a chimp, but a life-size Neanderthal in a museum case in the lobby for the premiere. The weekend midnight shows were called The All Night Show and was booked by my husband, who in addition to managing the theater was a grad student, finishing his degree in film at the time. I am, myself, a former Playboy employee who was there at the time.
