Photos: Inside the Fox porno theatre with Arrival Agency and a black light

    1 of 16 2 of 16

      The team behind Waldorf Productions recently spent a significant amount of time inside the Fox Theatre, the last cinematic pornography venue in Vancouver.

      They made a very public display of the outing, gleefully posting photographs on Twitter and Instagram, and deploying a black light to full effect.

      The group’s new production company, Arrival Agency, recently teamed up with the Rickshaw Theatre’s David Duprey to convert the Fox Theatre into a new live music venue. They hope to have people dancing in the space at Main and Broadway later this year.

      “It’s a little skanky in there, to say the least,” Duprey told the Straight back in March.

      He was not exaggerating.

      Arrival Agency’s Michael Mann apparently drew the short straw. His photographs appear below (originally posted at whatsupmann.com/).

      A warning: it’s about as bad as you’d expect.

      Hey! I am a longtime attendee of The Fox and some of those paintings are mine. Where's my credit?

      But will there be any where to masturbate in the new venue?

      That Scott Baio mural is actually an artifact of Kier-la Janisse's short-lived Criminal Cinema enterprise, which took over the Fox on weekends about 12 years ago. From what I remember, she just covered the seats with hefty bags.

      Well, I can see why someone blacked his face out with magic marker. I wouldn't want Scott Baio watching me jerk off.

      I take it health inspectors don't check-in on porn theaters.
