From the early 1960s right up to the death-blow wielded by The Meese Commission, anything went on 42nd Street in New York City. Porno guys got cheap multi-year leases on most of “ The Deuce” and surrounding blocks. Formerly unrentable retail stores became “storefront theaters.” A plywood partition was built to house the projector, the back wall was painted white or a sheet hung up, a few dozen folding chairs were lined up, and the windows were blacked out. Usually a window had something on it to entice you in - a painted silhouette of a naked woman or a glaring cheap sign, framed out in
yellow light bulbs, proclaiming “XXX Movies.” Now, After Hours Cinema and Secret Key Motion Picture are going to give you the “Grindhouse” storefront theater viewing experience in the GRINDHOUSE TRASH COLLECTION: Three grimy softcore gems from the late 1960s, UTA, LUSTFUL NEIGHBORS and THE PIMP PRIMER. Look for adult screen icons John Holmes and Uschi Digard in early screen roles!
