The Kings Theatre

November 4th, 2014

One of the metropolitan area's five "Wonder Theatres" opened by Loew's in 1929-30, the Kings went out of business in 1977 and had been deteriorating for years (interior, exterior) before its recent renovation. It had its grand reopening a few months after I walked by.

Check out these spectacular shots of the restored interior, and scroll down a bit in this NY Times article to view a set of gorgeous 360-degree panoramas, one from each of the five Wonder Theatres.

    It is wonderful to see when such buildings are restored.

    Spectacular is indeed the word here. :-)

    Far too many have not been so lucky.

    These are parts of history, and should be respected.
