No on-camera required. Used to be very seedy, but a few years ago was given an upgrade. There is still a small free parking lot in back, and meters on the street. Every knows the game and is cool. Perhaps the owners have been discouraging that. Would anyone who used to work at this theater be willing to talk to us at Thrillist about it for an article?
After the demise of the Sunset Pussycat Theatre, this is the only theatre showing straight porn in the greater metropolitan Los Angeles area. It may also be the last theatre in Los Angeles with a turnstile entrance as well. It may have been a small silent theater in the past and it seems to have been at this location for a great many years now. I worked at the Pussycat Theater on Ocean Blvd. I somehow came up with the address Ocean Blve by searching and checked it out on google maps and it does appear that the entire area was demolished and rebuilt. I recall that on the corner just down from it was a low rent apt bldg ran by an older Asian lady.

Guess it is real Hollywood as they make this somewhat run down area look glamorous. We did this tour as part of LA Go Card. It was interesting tour with lot of nice fun facts about Oscar. Our tour guide was very good telling us every bit of it.
