Christine (Sandy McLeod) takes a job selling tickets at a porno theater near Times Square. Instead of distancing herself from the dark and erotic nature of this milieu, she develops an obsession that begins to consume her life. Few films deal honestly with a female sexual pointof-view, controversial and highly personal, VARIETY does just this.
Did You Know?
The theater in the film was not located in Times Square. The real theater, Variety Photoplays, was located on Third Avenue between 13th and 14th Streets in the East Village. It can be seen in Martin Scorsese's "Taxi Driver" in the scene where Jodie Foster jumps into Robert DeNiro's cab to get away from her pimp. The marquee can clearly be seen out the back windshield.

The footage of a Yankees game [0:51] shows Yankees pitcher "49" pitching to Yankees batter "36" while another Yankee steals second base. Behind the plate is catcher "15" from an opposing team (possible the Baltimore Orioles), although the scoreboard shot during the National Anthem depicted a game between the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox.
