Apex may stay open as a porn theater after all

106A couple weeks ago, we told you about plans to auction off Fells Point’s Apex, Baltimore’s last adult movie theater. Well, as the BBJ reports, the auction happened and the place was sold to investor Sam Singh for $295,000. Surprisingly, according to the BBJ, Singh “indicated he is willing to allow it to remain as Baltimore’s last adult movie theater.”

The details of the auction are kinda hilarious:

Because of rain, the auction took place just under the movie theater’s screen, and bidders stood among the ripped and broken seats that appeared to be original to the 6,750-square-foot building.

The dimly lit theater was rank with the odor of the deteriorating seats and the room retained only a few vestiges of what was once one of several movie palaces that were in the area.

Yah, that was the smell of “deteriorating seats,” sure BBJ. Anyone who has seen our heart-stopping gallery of pictures from inside the Apex (NSFW – or for holding down your lunch), can imagine what else contributed that smell.

The BBJ also reports that “the gross annual income for the property was $32,619″ – allowing countless readers to join us in saying something like “now that’s what I call ‘gross annual income.’”
