Rock pictures at the porn theater

I found this ad while going through looking for 1975 concerts for the Tomorrow Club list. It’s for a Pink Floyd concert film in late July of that year. Of course, everyone knows the Foster as a porn theater (oldest movie theater still in operation in Youngstown BTW), but it did sort of get into art house and foreign films from time to time back in those days.

I have no clue as to what the Pink Floyd concert film was here. I’m leaning toward something from the Dark Side tour. Perhaps it was just the album set to the backdrop film the band used. It definitely did not have anything to do with Wish You Were Here as that wasn’t released until September 1975.

One thought on “Rock pictures at the porn theater

  1. Mike says:

    Oh man, the “Undergrounds” (as my friends and I called them) at the Foster were legendary. A group of my friends and I were regular attendees on Saturdays at midnight, though I think by 1975 we might have left it behind.

    But in earlier years we were there all the time. As far as I can remember, the Foster was still an “art” theater (as opposed to a porn palace) back in those days. I can recall seeing “Monterey Pop” there more than once, possibly “Woodstock” as well (I’m not quite as sure on this), and tons of short experimental films from all over the place. Oh yeah, and also Neil Young’s “Journey Through the Past” — a film I’d wager few have seen even to this day (trust me, you haven’t missed anything!).

    I think I may still have my membership card. I would love to hear from others who were a part of this local cultural phenomenon. Maybe we can spark additional memories. I would also like to get the timeline a little more firmly fixed. I’m a little surprised to learn that the Foster was doing this as late as 1975.
