    Some more from Portland.









    Tying into the one Robin posted earlier. I was actually in there one night as my old roommate's brother used to work at the theater. It was all projection, showing modern gonzo stuff, and there were only a few lonely old man hanging out in the theater, but I've heard stories...



    And the Magic Gardens, where you can talk Bava with strippers.



    Rock! Shock! Pop!

    Some pictures of the bathroom in the Magic Gardens and some of the awesome novelties you can buy out of the vending machine there.

    He was the founder/owner. He'd been around forever but passed away around the time that picture was taken.

    Robin, yep, I have that issue. Doesn't sound too far removed from some of the stories my friend told me about working there. He also said that in the basement there were entrances to the Shanghai Tunnels.

    Dude I'm working with now just told me yesterday that he worked at a strip club in the 90's as a dancer. This place is mixed gender and I guess at the time his wife danced there as well. In addition, his aunt and cousin were employed at this same place and he said that on some nights all four of them would be on their respective stages at one time.

    As soon as he told me all this I imagined him looking like Patrick Swayze in the SNL Chippendales sketch and when I told him that he said "Dude! You know how many people used to say that to me? I had long blond hair just like that!" He does indeed have a Swayze vibe mixed with a little Huey Lewis.

    Perks of the job according to him: tanning bed and weight bench in the dressing room. Women buying him shots all night. A free USA leather jacket, like this one...



    He also has a small Van Halen logo tattoo on his left hand that he gave to himself when he was 14. He said he was so drunk that he spilled the India ink on the floor and had to dip the needle into the carpet.

    Here's a rant/blog entry I wrote about a year ago that I'm gonna repost here with some pictures taken around that time about a theater a few blocks away from where we live.

    I never got to go to The Eagle. Not for real, at any rate. Yes, I walked by it plenty of times and photographed it’s marquee quite frequently, but I never went inside. Now, this isn’t entirely my fault. The Eagle, as this art deco theater located in Jackson Heights on 37th Road (and right next door to a busy subway entrance) has been called since long before I moved to the area, has been closed. A Bollywood theater, it was hit hard by the film strike in Mumbai that crippled the Bollywood film industry – if you don’t have movies to show, no one will come to your theater, right? In this case, that seemed to be the case. There’s a HUGE Indian population around the theater, large enough that you’d think it would gladly support the theater, but for whatever reason, it never reopened.

    I learned today, after doing a random Google search for the theater, that it was gutted last month. Nothing exists inside from its original incarnation. If you look around online you’ll find a nice gallery of shots taken before the gutting commenced, and those with an appreciation for urban decay and neat old movie houses will definitely appreciate what they see, but it’s no more. The external facade, at the time of this writing, still exists. The marquee hangs out over the sidewalk of the road that thousands of people pass across each and every day, but a rolled gate keeps its doors from opening. Rumors persist on Jackson Heights message boards that either an Indian store is going in there (which would make sense) or a Rite-Aid will be taking over the space (which the community doens’t need – we’ve got enough of them here already, thank you very much – and what’s with Rite-Aid’s tendency to take over gorgeous old theaters? It seems more frequent than it should be!). What would you rather have in your neighborhood, a great, art deco theater built in the late 1930s or a lame corporate drug store that overcharges based on location and demographic?

    This is depressing not only because it represents a lost opportunity for yours truly to explore a neat old building and check out an interesting relic of NYC’s grindhouse history -it long stood as The Earle, a XXX theater that showed all manner of bizarre films, and it then went ‘gay XXX’ (Jackson Heights has a large gay population and apparantly while this was a gay XXX theater the area was referred to as ‘Vaseline Alley,’ a tag line that exists to this day but which now seems to refer to the gay bars on Roosevelt Ave. near the subway station) before turning into The Eagle and becoming the Bollywood establishment that would prove its swansong – but it’s just one more sign that independent theatrical play is becoming a thing of the past. Jackson Heights had three theaters the first time I came to visit here – a low rent porno house (now demolished), The Eagle, and a triplex on the busy stretch between Roosevelt Ave. and 37th Ave. on 82nd Street. Only the 82nd Street theater remains, it’s one of the few in the city that shows mainstream Hollywood pictures with Spanish subtitles so it has a large demographic to support, but even that theater was closed temporarily a few months ago.

    Now I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t support theatrical screenings as often as I could or should but that’s not out of laziness or financial reasons. I make enough money that I could go to the movies more often if I chose to. But the multiplex sucks. I don’t want to go to the mall to see a movie. I want to sit in a musty theater, in the dark, in a weird area of town, and pay less then $15.00. Blame it on growing up in Niagara Falls, where the old Cineplex Odeon/Seneca Theater on Queen Street was a haunt for myself and my friends. That same theater is where I almost got beaten up outside of a screening of Halloween IV (had it not been for my friend’s father showing up just in time I’d have been in big trouble). This was the place where after the movie finished we’d wander around making fun of hookers. It was safe enough inside that it was fun to go there, but it had something that modern theaters lack these days, and that’s character. The Eagle, at least from the outside and the pictures I’ve seen of the interior, had a lot of character. I won’t get on a soap box and proclaim to miss the theater – I never got to experience it in the first place – but I will say that my wife and I frequently said that if we ever won the lottery we’d buy it and turn it back into a movie house. That won’t happen now, not that it was a likelihood in the first place, but it still makes me want to raise a stiff middle finger to the trickle down effect of the corporate take over of this country and shout a big fuck you to all who are complacent enough not to notice or, worse yet, don’t care.

    AFter you took the phots, did you go into the Kabab King? Seems the most logical next step. What theater marquee did Distribpx Steve inherit? The one in his warehouse?
