    Cruisiest Spots: Basement level is all Gay theatres and individual booths. Most of the cruising goes on down here.

  • Beware of cops! I was there when a couple of cops came in. Staff said they come by almost nightly. When you hear the someone entering the thearter, stop what you are doing immediately!

  • Anyone good who comes in is hit on by the staff!!! That srtinkin Indian who works there weekend evenings - the younger skinny one - locks up the office goes in the big btheatresc and sits in the seat next to him. If you try to get the guy he wants he will say you are a problem or there is complaint and you have to leave.
