Do the Strand!!! – Strand Theater, Kansas City – Refrigerated Adult Memories from The 60’s, Part One

The Strand Theater in Kansas City is still alive and kicking, and it has a history of being one of the better places for Adult Sin-ema. Although it opened up in 1917, it was showing Adult fare since around 1962. By the Mid 60’s, things were moving into the Rougher sides on a regular basis while the girls were appearing onstage with some of the most hilarious names ever (Elkie Sletzer!). Tonight I feel like just whipping up a collection of what I have and letting you enjoy it. Words will only spoil the effect although a few will be around. There’s a lot of wild flicks, Go Go Burlesque, fun, and Roughing it up!

9-7-67 – Now with Underground Movies!!! This was a growing trend of the day. At this time, a Chicago theater known as the Town Underground turned into an Underground cinema for about a year before returning to Adult films. The Art Guild Chain was popularizing this – in my area, the Toledo cinema was the Westwood.
