LA Times ad, 1971

Located in the south of West Hollywood, the Cine-Cienega Theatre was small theatre which opened on February 18, 1970 with Marlo Thomas in “Jenny”. It was operated by Avco-Embassy. It ran independent films in the 1970’s and some adult fare as well. It later became a playhouse.

Demolished by 1987, a new building on the site houses an up-market bar/restaurant known as STK.

Here is a 1970 ad from the LA Times:

The County Assessor’s office says that this parcel now contains a building erected in 1987. The building that housed the Cine Cienega must have been demolished, and the bar and restaurant must be in the new building that replaced it.

Since adult fare is mentioned in the description, this must be where I recall either “The Devil in Miss Jones” or “Deep Throat” playing before they settled in (forever and ever) at the Pussycat.

I’m not confusing it with a Pussycat. I said I believe I saw one of those films here, don’t know which one, BEFORE they took up permanent residence at the Pussycat. This was in 1972 or 1973, when it was suddenly all the rage to “openly” go to a “mainstream” (well, sorta) porn flick, for the fancy new ticket price of $5.00, and it was the only time I was in the Cine-Cienega.
