Tuckwood Cinema

Description

An old "Gentleman's Club" converted into a Movie theater.

History

Founded by George "Sniffles' Shier in 1963, formerly Club Ginger, many patrons were very disappointed when it closed down in 1968 due to rat droppings found in its free lunch buffet.

After a brief stint as a Salvation Army headquarters for the North-Western side of Malton and Sniffles getting out of jail for importing pandas, it was refurbished and opened again in 1971 as Tuckwood Cinema. One of the many Adult cinemas around Malton during the late 70s and early 80s. It became a scene in 1972 when the Watergate scandal that Had President Nixon on the ropes. Due to a secretive informant named "Deepthroat" that leaked information to the press. And having a common name as a movie that was released just a few months before.

During the late 80s Tuckwood became more of a performance art stage for the erotic scene of Malton.

Forced to close down for a few years in the 90s due to a group of Buddhists who's major problem with Tuckwood wasn't the films and art acts that were shown here, but their belief that the building itself was not in-line and correct for the Fung-shui of Malton.

Closed permanently in 2003. It finally reopened just a few days before the zombie outbreak. Unfortunately no one was watching the front doors when a horde of 50 zombies swarmed into the theater and devoured all sixteen people who were enjoying 'Behind the Green Door'.
