Kings Theatre1027 Flatbush Ave Brooklyn, NY 11226
Once one of Brooklyn’s most elegant movie theaters, the Loew’s Kings Theatre opened in Flatbush as a movie and live performance space in 1929 but began to decline in the 1950s as multiplex cinemas became popular. The doors were closed in 1977, and the theater fell into disrepair. Now, after an elaborate $93 million renovation, the 3,074-seat theater has reopened, its original glory fully restored.
The theatre features high curved ceilings, ornate laster walls, wood paneling, and a glazed terra-cotta ornamental façade. The Kings is perfect for film premieres, screenings, corporate events, cocktail receptions, business meetings, film/television shoots and magazine shoots.
Guest Capacity, Seated and Standing: 3,000
Square Footage: 93,000

#ThrowBackThursday: View of the Kings Theatre steel framework during our construction in 1928. After the framework was completed and less than three weeks later, the exterior walls and roof were installed. To learn more about our history and restoration, be sure to grab your copy of 'Kings Theatre: The Rise, Fall and Rebirth of Brooklyn's Wonder Theatre' by Matt Lambros of After the Final Curtain and published by the Theatre Historical Society of America available now on Amazon.
