Outstanding Gay Theater – I thought I was straight until I watched a gay flick and until someone touched me...
Jefferson Theater rocks with action – This place is so cool. Old time adult theater with two sections. The straight side features movies with a place where couples sit in the back. When the action gets hot, watch for the couples start enjoying themselves and the men in the theatre gathering around and really get excited while watching the couples. On Tuesday nights they bring in strippers, who openly admit that they feel their job is to try to encourage the men to get themselves off.
The gay side gets hot too, if your thing is watching gay movies and watching the audience do what gay men like to do.
The Jefferson Theater A Unique Experience – A lady E-Mailed me recently about going to the Jefferson Theater. She is a little bit nervous and scared about what might happen to her, there. If she is lucky, nothing will happen to her there. If she is really lucky EVERYTHING will happen to her there. Seriously, I tried to tell her that its not all that bad, once you are in the couples section. Its always better when there are other couples playing.
The Jefferson Theater is a theater that shows movies intended for those 18 years and older, and encourages the audience to explore their special fantasies while they are there. You have to be a member in good standing (!) to participate in the Jefferson experience. The Jefferson Experience varies from hour to hour, day to day; and week to week. One hundred different people can have one hundred different experiences at the same time and they are all Jefferson Experiences. At its best, the place is electric A current of E delight travels through it and gently shocks everyone. At its worst , its a gay geriatric flop house for the hygienically challenged. Those are the times that it is a typical Theater, a refuge from time, the outside world and your crummy life.
Part of the charm of the Jefferson is its "Raincoa"t Theater ambience. But, It's actually very clean and well kept. The screen is very bright. Tell the guys in front of you to sit down so you can watch the movie. You have to be over 18 and sign the membership agreement
Good times to come.... – I will admit-- I was a Jefferson virgin up until Friday, 3/10/2006.. Now I can't seem to get enough.. The atmosphere is so relaxing and not intimidating.. I've been there a few times now, as a couple and by myself.. I would have to say that it's a very great way to let out some pent up frustration.. .. and ! They brought back exotic tuesdays! .. Very nice.. .. See ya'll friday up on stage..
not in kansas anymore – I thought adult theaters had gone the way of the 8-track tape. I expected something dusty and nostalgic, or on its last legs, stubbornly fighting obsolescence. But the Jefferson Theater is very much alive and kicking. The smallish front lobby sells DVDs and adult toys. The real deal is behind the curtain. You buy a ticket for $8 and sign an agreement that makes you a "guest member" of their private club. The architectural details inside indicate the theater has had a long and varied history. The huge screen lights up the room with new release type movies (not the Marylin Chambers I expected). I have been surprised repeatedly by women actually coming to the Jefferson, usually with their significant other. Suffice it to say, folks get real friendly with each other. The Jefferson changed my concept of adult theaters altogether..
not4squares – well, i was shocked and amazed when i first went to Jefferson Theatre, the commercial on late night t.v. does this place a great injustice. You have to see it to believe it and have the ability to relinquish any part of your mind that says "no" to absolutely enjoy this place. I have been several times and at several different times and days. What a experience each time. I ended up becoming a member.
