Back of Photo:
Two protestors stand in front of the Playtime Rex Theater in Tacoma's Eastside neighborhood. The original Rex Theater opened in 1919, and closed its doors in 1958. In 1980, adult theater corporation Playtime Cinemas reopened the location as the Playtime Rex Theater for live performances and adult movie showings. In the photograph, the theater sign reads, "Playtime Rex: Annete Haven In Person Tonight." The protestors pose underneath the marquee, holding picket signs that read, "Citizens Against Porn" on the left, and "Get Filth Out of Our Neighborhood," "Unless Ye Repent So Ye Also Shall Perish," held by the person on the right.
