Kings Theatre
1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Rapp & Rapp, 1929; Restoration, Martinez + Johnson, 2015

The historic Kings Theatre reopened its doors in 2015 as one of New York’s premier performing arts venues. The Kings was one of the five Loew’s “Wonder Theatres” built in New York and New Jersey in the 1920’s, featuring high curved ceilings, ornate plaster walls, wood paneling, and a glazed terra-cotta ornamental facade. As a classic 20th-century movie palace, the Kings was inspired by the French Renaissance Revival style of the Palace of Versailles and the Paris Opera House. Visit during OHNY Weekend to take a self-guided tour and speak with theater staff about this remarkable restoration.

Access Notes: The mezzanine level is not wheelchair accessible, though the ground floor is.
