A Night at the Adonis

Directed by Jack Deveau
United States, 1978
LGBT+

Synopsis

This late 70s feature film from legendary Jack Deveau holds up surprisingly well today, even if the casual viewer might be put off by the emphasis on plot over sex. Yes, in the 70s they actually made porn movies which guys paid to see in theatres and they actually had stories.

  • El Biffo's rating of the film A Night at the Adonis

    If you never got a chance to spend a night cruising at the legendary Adonis, this film is your opportunity to experience it through the magic of cinema. Marvelously meta, the action all takes place at the legendary NYC theater, and had it's world premiere at the very same theater. For a really authentic experience, enjoy this with some "poppers" or butyl nitrate, or just leave a bottle open for that "Lockaroma" . . .
