Built in 1935 as a retail unit. The Cinematheque 16 Moviehouse was opened on June 9, 1966 with James Cagney in “Public Enemy” & Edward G. Robinson in “Little Caesar”. This 16mm movie theatre functioned as the site of a fundraiser for Norman Mailer’s bid for Mayor of New York City in 1969; Jim Morrison read poetry at this event. By September 1972 it was operating as an adult movie theatre. On September 26, 1974 it was renamed Sun Art Theatre screening Linda Lovelace in “Deep Throat” & “The Devil in Miss Jones”. It was closed in 1976.
It’s now Book Soup, a venerable neighborhood bookstore.
