I don't believe ever showed "X's". However The Oakhill in Greenwood did.

I think the Capitol in Scranton was one of the last to have Vaudville.

I lived in Scranton from 1968 to 1975. I remember my kids going to the Rosie, so it wasn't showing X rated then.

I recall going to a theater in downtown Scranton, (don't know which one) with a friend to see my first X-rated film - Midnight Cowboy - with Dustin Hoffman and Jon Voight. Thinking back, in comparison with what goes today, it probably would have barely made an R.

ETA: I just realized that I said, "My first X rated film". Please don't get the idea that I followed that with a string of X rateds. MOF, I'm not sure I've seen another!!

Lol...in re-reading this thread I realized that my home town of Patchogue also had a Rialto theater that I went to when I was a kid. It closed in the 1970's.
