Thread: Grindhouse/Times Square Marquees...

  1. #11
    Alison.....WOW, great stuff..You have awoken me and this is my first post! Great pictures, I remember a thread like this from a while back and I am so fascinated with these types of pics, especially the ones here in NYC. It is sort of amazing and also sad, to see what has become of some of the grand XXX film houses of 42 street. I often find myself walking down 8 th Ave or 42 nd st and wondering if the powers that be, ever thought that when they began to demolish the infrastructure of the 'Deuce", that they were also dismantling a part of American culture that will never and can never be replaced. That is why these photos are key, and that is one of the reasons why it is so important to keep the Distribpix archive alive. It is not just films......it is history, culture and it is a legacy.


    Here is the short tribute to some of the grind houses and theaters of Times Square, also available on the Platinum Elite Collection of Shaun Costello's, 'The Passions of Carol'.



    And please visit: www.distribpix.com, it is slowly becoming a one stop source for some very rare golden age erotica, sexploitation and exploitation material!!

    This one is older than I like, but I think seeing how the marquee looked back then is neat...

    Yep. I've often thought how messed up it is that if most people had time machines they'd go back to the time of Jesus or something but I'd go back to 42nd Street circa 1976.

    Priorities.

    those are so rad. I like the one with (post #12) with The Sperminator on the marquee to the left and Pee-Wee Herman jumping off his bike to the right. It's like a prophetic image.

    I also like the one in post #16, with Olga's Massage Parlor on the marquee...that little guy on the right looks like he could be me standing there. I shall pretend it is.

    This doesn't really belong here but I didn't want to start a new thread for only one picture...
