The Wood-Six Porno Theater













 The Wood-Six Porno Theater- Click to enlarge

The Wood-six porno theater was located at the corner of Woodward Ave and Six Mile Rd in Highland Park. You can see from the photo that it used to be the Highland Park State Bank. With the advent of the Internet most such old porno theaters have closed. The building was bought and remodeled as a straight strip club today. When I was a curious 18 year old in 1985 I ventured into the Wood-six out of curiosity. I had two "theaters" the one upstairs showed straight porn and the downstairs theater showed gay porn. I went downstairs to the gay porno theater and found it very old and creepy/dirty! There was two old guys sitting in the theater. One of them turned around and would not stop staring at me. I tried to give him the dirtiest look I could, but he just would not stop staring at me. I only stayed about a minute and got the hell out of there! Also check out my other blog: motorgay.net

  1. That entire area of Woodward was the "porn section" tolerated/greased by the Detroit Police. The theater had to have owners who were "connected"; no police raids I ever knew of. Almost every adult business was in the 6 Mile/Woodward area.

    Visited it only twice. Scared and repressed young men and filthy old queens looking for pick-ups from what I observed. Glad to say that gay people do not have to hide in trash bins like the Wood-Six!

    Detroit was NEVER a gay friendly town. A shame all the gays left, so many nice homes would still be standing today.

    I like your blog although never a bar guy, found it by "accident" looking through another web site. Interesting.

  2. Well, I have to say I enjoyed this place throughout the 80's.. I hooked up with many good looking, quality men.. Yes, the few spooky ones, but I ignored and moved on.. I thank god for places like this back in those days because for guys like me, shy and all, was hard for me to recognize or know if guys were interested. In a place like this, I knew why they were there because i was there for the same thing..

  4. I had fun going there back in the 70'sand early 80's. It was your typical hole in the wall the rivaled NYC's 42nd St. The place is no longer there and hasn't been there for years.

  5. Thanks for posting this, I went to this place once in 1996. Trashy and sleazy and scary. Actually had nude dancers who went out into the audience. It was a full house and I tripped over a guy in the aisle who was going down on someone else in the first seat in one of the rows, it was right out of "There's Something About Mary." I wish Detroit and every other city still had porn theaters, I love that sort of trash, I don't want to see more Starbucks'. But I wouldn't do anything in one of these holes, that's just disregard for your health.

  6. It could really be a fun spot, if you were in the right sleazy mood, which I often was in those days. I avoided the nights the dancers were there though, because that's when it got a little too nasty with hustlers, etc.

    Still, I met a hot CMU student here, we went out to my van (tol'ja I was a little sleazy, but, hey, it was the '70s!) and then got together for the next few years after that everytime he was in town.

  7. I was too young and timid to go there but remember being a kid and staring at the ad in the Free Press for the Wood Six theater. The ad featured a male's facial profile and "All Male" was listed in the ad.

    It was my first exposure to anything gay until a special on PBS.

  8. I went there a couple of times in the 70's, and met some guys. I was about 19. I remember once I was standing against the wall in the front on Woodward, sort of with a cruising pose, but then a cop car pulled up. The cop said "Come here sweetheart." I responded "What's your problem?" He said "what are you doing here?", and I said "waiting for the bus." Right then, the Woodward bus came by, and I hopped on it. Saved! God, I hated the Detroit cops.

  26. I went here a couple of times with a fiance back in the early '80s. We were both into adult theaters and we only did oral and intercourse with each other. The first time we went to the Wood-6, we started upstairs. We were the only couple in the place. We had sex and the guys watched. When she was done with our having sex there, she wanted to see what the guys were doing downstairs. It was seedy and that really turned her on. The handful of guys there swarmed her (us). She asked if she could watch the guys doing something sexual and they obliged her. She asked me to lick her while she watched and I obliged her. After guys were done and she 'felt done' she let me know it was time for us to go.
