Kings Theatre in Flatbush, Brooklyn

Kings Theatre in Flatbush, Brooklyn reopened in 2015 after undergoing a 4-year $95 million restoration. The #theater was originally constructed in 1929 as one of the five Loew's "Wonder Theatres" in NYC and New Jersey. It operated as an entertainment palace showing #films and vaudeville acts in a lavish interior inspired by the Palace of Versailles and the Paris Opera House. Kings Theatre closed in 1977 and sat abandoned for years, falling into disrepair before finally being restored. The front of the building seen in our photo features a glazed terra-cotta ornamental facade.
