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 is poised to reopen, its original glory fully restored. Click through the slide show below to see photos of the revamped space, as well as historical images of what it once looked like. The theater’s first show will feature Diana Ross, who performs February 3. (1027 Flatbush Avenue, Brooklyn)
