Time Out says

Kings Theatre, the legendary theatre in Flatbush, Brooklyn, is re-launching historic tours of its opulent space this February.

During the 75-minute tour, you'll discover historical and architectural highlights, beginning in the majestic grand lobby from 1929. You'll also be ushered through ornate speakeasy lounges and both levels of the 3,055-seat auditorium and see the baroque stylings of this opulent theatre, the “Queen of Kings,” the Robert Morgan Wonder Organ and gaining insight into the daily workings of the theatre.

You can upgrade your experience with two drinks and access to one of the theatre's private speakeasies for a post-tour destination.

Built in 1929 as one of the five original Loew’s Wonder Theatres, Kings Theatre was initially a movie palace and live performance venue featuring vaudeville reviews. After closing down in 1979, the theatre sat dormant until undergoing a restoration in 2013 which included the repair of the original lobby furniture. The theatre reopened as Kings Theatre in 2015 with Diana Ross as the debut performance.

There are a total of three tours on the schedule as of now: February 18 at 1pm, March 11 at 1pm and, for the first time ever, a weekday option on March 21 at 7pm.

You can purchase your ticket right here.
