On Wednesday, January 23, Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz and Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg broke ground on the restoration of the historic Loew's Kings Theatre in Flatbush. See a photo from the event and renderings of the renovations below!
"Bravo to the entire 'cast of actors' who have made this possible, especially Mayor Bloomberg, EDC President Seth Pinsky and the entire EDC team, Councilman Eugene and ACE Theatrical," said BP Markowitz. "Restoring the glory of the Loew's Kings Theatre into a combination of the Beacon and the Apollo all rolled into one has long been a dream of mine and the Flatbush community-and now it is time for the theater's triumphant 'encore.' Not only will the new facility be the largest indoor theater in the borough-hosting everything from concerts and plays to special events and graduation ceremonies-it will be an engine of economic growth along Flatbush Avenue and for all of Central Brooklyn. The Loew's Kings Theatre will play a leading role in the arts' next great act, right here on Brooklyn's big stage."
