Doc here... It's been quite the day in terms of breaking news in adult theater closings and openings. First Secrets in Des Moines, WA. Then Hobbeze opens in Lebanon, PA.
But now, this is a biggie: Cinema Blue in Birmingham, AL is now closing for good on December 31st, 2014. The building has been sold to a business across the street for re-development.
No one knows the Birmingham adult theater scene (as well the scene across this great country) better than my good friends Mark & Christine. M&C ran the former Adult Theater Play Yahoo Group for many, many years before Yahoo nuked it for no reason over a year ago. They had one of the best go-to-resources anywhere for this thing of ours.
I would run into Mark and Christine on the road in unusual places at unusual times. Once at the now closed Babes Adult Theater in Las Vegas on a quiet Wednesday night. Another time at CTs in Gary, IN. Another time at 15th Ave. Adult Theater in Chicago.
In short, Mary and Christine are awesome. So when I saw their e-mail pop up in my in-box today, I was glad to see their names. Then the subject line laid the foundation about Cinema Blue's demise.
Here are Mark and Christine with the news about Cinema Blue...
