The Ivar, Hollywood. I hear the ticket taker's smile is pretty damn cold.

The Ivar has a long history and has returned to legit theatre. I'm sure Tom Waits appreciates that you remember the Emotional Weather Forecast.

D.C. also had a slew of legit theaters that turned from stage to film, to porno, to touring "dancers" displaying their lovely genitals for all to see. The Gayety on 9th St. NW was a particular fave with a long, storied past.

It is missed. . . .

A billboard here in Denver reads, "Topless Dancers" - "No Cover". To which I can only say, I should only hope so.
