Heh heh. The Roxy groper.
The fondler of Fox theater.

Frank O’Hara on cinema groping/fondling:
they may even be grateful to you
for their first sexual experience
which only cost you a quarter
and didn’t upset the peaceful home
oh mothers you will have made the little tykes
so happy because if nobody does pick them up in the movies
they won’t know the difference
and if somebody does it’ll be sheer gravy
and they’ll have been truly entertained either way
(from “Ave Maria”)

In my mother’s youth, creepy men in cinemas was a real social problem, so I guess the little glowing windows are a lesser evil.
Maybe someone will combine the two by sending pornographic texts?
I recall the days when kids – including me – used to hang around the foyer of cinemas showing an A-rated film and approach lone men with the request “Take us in, mister?”
Oh my God. That just sounds so problematic. According to the South Park movie, such practice is still going on due to the silly R rating.
