John Waters starred in a "No Smoking" theatrical trailer projected first at the Nuart Theatre in which he advises patrons to 'smoke anyway'. In addition Mr. Waters also stars in a Nuart specific theatrical trailer in appreciation to the theater for showing Pink Flamingos for many years and making star DIVINE a 'Filth Goddess'. Mr. Waters also appeared in a theatrical trailer for the film festival Shock Value. The John Waters trailers were directed by Douglas Brian Martin and produced by Douglas Brian Martin and Steven M. Martin. The Nuart also projected theatrical trailers by the Martin brothers featuring David Lynch and Peter Ivers.
The Nuart was the location for the theatrical world premiere of Beyond the Valley of the Ultra Vixens directed by Russ Meyer. Edith Massey of Pink Flamingos fame performed on a makeshift stage with her punk rock band The Incredible Edible Eggs featuring Regina 'Gina' Schock on drums prior to Ms. Schock becoming a member of the all-girl rock band The Go-Go's. Director Michel Gondry filmed part of Beck's video for "Deadweight" at the Nuart. The Nuart is mentioned in Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death.
The Nuart was bought by Landmark Theatres in 1974 and was the first Landmark theater, along with the UC Theater in Berkeley. The theater was remodeled in 2006 and currently seats 303 people.
