Well, playing art house films should clean the place out

They're planning on giving the whole building a full body Brazilian wax.

Here's the only thing that will come near to working:

Don't forget to clean the cracks.

They're leveling the site and nuking it from orbit?

You know, just to be sure.

Seriously, though, sterilizing the place is going to remove all of its authenticity.

I wouldn't go to an art house theater that thought it was above showing porn.

About a bajillion years ago, I worked for a small movie theater in an office which was also the projection room. About half of what they showed at the time were 'art' movies, the rest was the second run stuff.

Ha ha ha ha....people think that the masturbators only do so in *adult* films.....HA...ha

Aren't there laws against sterilizing people just because they go to art house theatres?

I believe this is the same one a female NOW reporter went in to do a story about, then promptly left.

It says they'll play porn during the day and arthouse films at night. That just seems so backwards...

An art house should be able to show porn while claiming they are merely presenting a film on its merits and pointing out the artistic relevance of a spread shot.

Any GOOD art house, that is.

Will they have a screening of Snatch? That could confuse the clientele.

The D n R Theater in Aberdeen, Wash went thru a remodeling/ cleaning. It was an 'art' house, then a porn venue, then it closed for ten years. when they opened it again, it was a showcase, The management has gone outta their way to get first-run films and solid rock acts.

/check out the 'Graffiti alley' behind the place it's worth the trip alone

I'm surprised there were any porn theaters left to convert. I thought the VCR basically killed them.

They aren't above it. The article says they will continue to show porn during the day.

I'm guessing this will become the Projection Room - West. They do odd screenings. I like these guys.

...there will be daily cleanings after the adult films let out.

Why? The audience will still be full of jack-offs.

Good idea - never been in there, but been past there hundreds of times. I would go to an Art House, but not a pr0n theatre. Toronto can support an Art House, one hopes.

Gone forever is the romance of porn on the big screen....

They kind of did that here in Lexington (aka Fark Central) -- the art theatre downtown was, for a time, a porn theatre.

I do remember going there when I was in college to see a midnight showing of a 3D porno starring John Holmes. Good times, good times...

I'll be interested to see if anyone comes.

Pfft. A few years back, on my 35th birthday, I decided that I'd be an "adult" and move out of my mom's basement*. Once I was gone, she had it "sterilized".
If they could sterilize that, I don't think a porn theatre will be too much of a problem.

*moved back in for good about 2 months later; it took weeks to get the proper "ambiance" back

The VCR doesn't get rid of the wife/girlfriend.

I shudder when I think of the segment of society that would patronize a daytime showing of a porn flick at an adult movie theater. Ugh.

Last century, they built a machine to tell you it was 12:00 at any time of the day, they called it a VCR.

It's Canada. The DVD player isn't scheduled to hit stores for another 7 months.

They should randomly mix the schedules up and see if anyone notices a difference

Adult movie theater? Why? Do they not have Internet in Toronto?
