Doc here with a sad Field Report from the Cina Mini 1 in Grand Rapids, MI. Regular contributor Just Visiting has done a nice job setting the scene of the renovated CM1, and the restrictions now in place there.
Take it away, JV!
Because ownership closed Cini Min 2 [selling it to make into a restaurant, as they are renovating the neighborhood, the same management has now opened Cina Mini 1 for 7 days a week. They completely renovated it to comply with really strict regulations.

When you walk in the door, there are 4 open booths on the right, no doors, no glory holes. There are 3 movie theaters, one plays straight, one bi-, and one gay. The whole layout is a semicircle. There is the desk with the person you pay who is sitting at the top of the semicircle so he can see every booth and every chair in the theaters, per the local regulations. Each theater has giant windows so you can see into the theater beside yours.
Cina Mini 1 reopened on March 25, and is closed for holidays like Easter. Now 12 dollars to go inside. There is a separate door for the DVD rental store which you can go into without fee. Due to the layout and the windows, everything is seen and monitored.
The good news is for sanitation, as there is a new large men's bathroom and also a single bathroom for families or wheelchair. Friday night there were two visitors and two others that drew some questionable looks. Pretty dead at 5:30 to 7pm which is usually prime drive time for visits.
Doc here again... Thanks to Just Visiting for the report and update. With the closing of the Cina Mini 2 across town (the worst adult theater I had ever set foot in back in 2010), the CM1 is the only game in town.
