This place is still dying. There are no longer any lockers to keep your coats and valuables. The place is unkempt and dirty. People are rude and drug sales continue. Stay away for your own health and well being.

This place is dying. Monday to Thursday, very few people. Drug sales are rampant. People are rude and obnoxious.

Better on Friday and Saturday late, after 11 pm. There's less obnoxious people on the weekend. I guess they must be more horny or drunk.

Save your $13.

Stopped in my first visit Saturday Dec 10th. $13 to enter, about twenty booths, no holes. One theatre which has approximately thirty seats. Several small table sitting areas. Lockers for 75 cents if you want to walk around nude or briefs.

No sex in the theatre ever, sex is in the booths. I went to the restroom, one guy walked in and jerked it out.

About twenty people in the place.

Plus: Sex is everywhere and cocks are all colors. Minus: The people from NYC are not looking for just sex, they will ask 300 questions trying to qualify you too see if you are date material.

It's been nearly a year since I've been here. I was surprised to see it has noticeably improved. It doesn't look like it's falling apart anymore. Looks like they made an effort to fix it up. Booths, bathrooms, and seating were clean.

I went on a Friday night around 11 and it was kinda busy, with a mix of ages, not just seniors — and yeah, some hot guys too. The loud hustlers were not there. I was able to hook up twice and then left.

I was there Thursday, February 3. This place is terrible. It is dirty. People are rude. There were only six people there, all over 60 and disgusting. Two of them smelled like they were homeless.

Stay away from this place. It is $13 wasted, unless you are young and into older guys and don't care what they look like. If you are a hustler, you won't make money here.

I went here last Thursday. Man, it was awful. There was one really loud scabby skinny hideous hustler. He just wouldn't STFU. And he hangs with some other hustlers. Guess management has let these hustlers take the place over.

So it's pretty much scary-looking trollish elders and these scabby loud stoned exceptionally unattractive hustlers. They reek of cheap weed. A few others under 50 but not many. Might be different on weekends.

I left quick and won't be back. The place looks like it's falling apart and extremely unsafe, like the ceiling is gonna cave in. Nice, eh?

I went last Friday. It's been "forever" since I've been. And it's still a pit. They were showing "Jurassic World" on a burnt-out screen.

There were a handful of guys there, late 50s to 70s, but not at all sexy. I did not dare sit down anywhere.

I reluctantly decided to hook up with this "decent" looking guy, but once in the booth he couldn't service my cock adequately for being so distracted by trying to light his funky smelling joint! Very clumsy and was a sloppy fuck.

Then there were these group of guys there talking loudly just dropping the "N-word" in every other word. I've since been told by that they were/are hustlers and drug dealers.

The guys hanging in the booths stroking and hoping you'll join them are no incentive that you'll ever want to do so.

I wasn't there long, will probably not ever return.

This place is terrible. There is no air conditioning. People are rude and disgusting. The majority of people are old, 60's and 70's, some 50's. There are a few hustlers there now.

They say they are going to fix the air conditioning but nothing has been done for the last months. There are fights between the few younger people there and the older ones. I saw someone get punched and bloodied.

Stay away if your smart.Go to the Fair Theatre in Queens instead. Cleaner and cheaper.

Went here tonight and there was no air conditioning. There were a few in there, but it was like an oven and it was hard to breathe. I asked for my money back and left quick. There is a sign saying there is no air conditioning. Avoid till winter. They're probably never gonna get air conditioning back.

This place went way downhill. Toilet does not have a seat on it. Booths are unlit. People are not friendly. Mostly older people, 50s, 60s, and 70's. They just walk around and do not play much. Weeknights are better than weekends. Less people to choose from but those who are there get down to it. Sunday, Wednesday, and Thursday are better than the rest. The few young ones who come are rude and obnoxious to the older people.

It is still there and it's open. It's on East 4th, right after the place on the corner. An unmarked door. It's $13 now. Good mix of ages and races, some hot and some not. Only open at night after 9. Can get somewhat busy late on Friday and Saturday. Also active on Thursday and Sunday. Other nights are mostly empty.

I went there tonight out of curiosity. I had not been there in many years. It's now $12, quite a bit darker and no staff monitoring. The video monitors are gone from the booths and they joined two of the booths together and removed those doors, creating a small dark area. Judging from the tile work they installed I think this place is owned by the same people as Kings Highway. Same design motif.

Club 82, with its long history as a gay underground venue stretching back decades, is one of the last sex movie theatres in this city. They play nonsexual and totally unsexy movies way too loud to get out of your mind as you are trying to have sex. Why bother showing them at all?

The guys are a mix, mostly being of European descent. You'll make do to get your nut. Ask a single booth hoarder if he will give it up so you can get busy with another guy, and if he doesn't, the next one usually will. About the locker robbery, I've been apprehensive about using them since they are far away and relatively secluded. Sorry to hear about that.

Heads Up!
Beware. I locked $60 cash and an iPhone in one of the lockers, but when I unlocked it later they were gone. There is another key hole on each locker so I assume whomever has the master key did the theft. All I got from the person at the entrance window was denial that it was possible.

Went on a Thursday night and the crowd was a complete mix of everything. Trolls, crazies and handsome men. However, no hustlers (rare in today's public sex venues). The space is huge, but the booths can stand to be updated. The later you go the better the selection and action! The actual movie room is a gigantic waste of space.

I've now been to this place twice and the reviews on pretty close to the mark. Both times I've been, around 20 to 30 dudes were roaming about and, yes, you may want to lower your standards a little. However that being said, you could do worse for your ten bucks and yes some trolls do take up the booths for hours, but there are a couple of dark corners and one spot where once a little something gets going, it becomes a cock free for all. An alright way to get your load popped and suck a dick or three.

Some of the reviews here are pure fantasy. This is one of the places I go regularly to suck cock, but I'm not deluded enough to think it's a sexual wonderland most of the time. Most nights are very slow, sometimes pointless. On a lucky night, it can be surprisingly busy, often for no obvious reason. The nice thing is once you pay your entrance fee, they really do leave you alone to do whatever you want. I suppose I'm one of those guys certain people complain about in that I tend to occupy a booth for hours. But that's only if I'm keeping busy, and I figure I'm entitled because I have a total cum-swallowing fetish so am providing a necessary service. If I'm not getting a steady stream of "customers," however, I get up and move about, letting somebody else try their luck. Go without attitude, be a good sport, and you'll probably have a good time.

I find some recent reviews to be highly exaggerated and borderline fantasy. This place is at best mediocre. And although I usually have fun here, it's often after hours of boredom when I've lowered my standards. I still think this place is one of the better bets in the city; you just need to be really patient.

I was at this place last Sunday, around midnight, and there were about 10 to 20 guys. It was a mix, but no shortage of older guys, a fair amount of regulars as a few of the guys knew each other. On the whole, not much to write home about. Booths are small and the place is divey, not worth the $10 to get in, at least not that night.

I go to this place all the time, about once a week. I went this past Saturday and got fucked maybe 10 times, and my hole was so sore and full of cum. There were three guys with the fattest cocks that came for seconds and thirds, and another guy sucked my hole looking for cum.

There are not so many trolls here, but even if there were, I think they also have the right to be there and have some fun, even if it is just watching. Remember we'll be old someday, too.

I go to this place every Saturday or Sunday and find it to be really hot. I get fucked several times and suck as many cocks as I can. Last week I got fucked by 7 guys, none of them trolls. One was a black guy with a cock as fat as a Snapple bottle. This other white guy likes to eat my hole first and then fuck me until he unloads.

I go there maybe 4 times a year. It used to be really good with some good looking men around. Now, all I see are trolls and no one good enough to have sex with. No one bothers you here but you have to wait long before someone decent comes in.

Was there last Sunday night and it was not a bad crowd. Of course the usual trolls but also some good-looking guys, too. Booth action was pretty busy around 11 pm. Worth the ten bucks.

No one bothers you here, unlike the annoying cashiers at the video stores screaming for bills in the booths. Note that the theatre now opens at 8 pm. I'd say this is one of the better places in the city for action.

At 2 am on a Saturday night it was not really crowded. There were a few cuties, some of the usual suspects, and a couple clusters of friends who monopolize a number of the booths trading off with each other. Not spectacular. Not awful. But too many people were drunk or impotent from poppers and drugs.

They boarded up half the stalls and the remaining stalls are occupied with squatters, waiting for someone to find them hot or at least attractive. It seldom happens so in the end it's a hotbed of frustration and not much hot man to man action. Stay home. You'll have more fun with your own hand.

The hours are 10:30 pm to 6:30 am. No porn here. It's all weirdo indie films you are supposed to rate for the Cinema Village. At 11 pm on a Saturday I was the only one there. The signs say 'single occupancy booths'. Prostitution and accepting proposal for it are forbidden. Lewd behavior forbidden. Double occupancy prohibited (is there a difference between forbidden and porhibited?). And the sign also says 'there are video cameras in use to provide prosecutors with evidence of criminal activity'. Fewer booths available now, no lights in them, only TVs and some are not turned on. My guess is that the place is more active after 2 am. Also, I tried to find video cameras in booths but was not able to detect any. It could be really well hidden. Place is much cleaner and smells better than it used to.
