Loew’s Kings



Acrylic/canvas 30x24”            1994

 The Kings Theater in Flatbush  was one of  five “Wonder Theaters” built in greater New York City for the Loew's chain in 1929-1930. Designed in a relatively straightforward “French style,” the  interior was  highly ornate  with a small balcony and massive organ screens and  seated  3,676 people. The exterior featured similar embellishments typical of the movie palaces of that era.  What a place to spend a Sunday matinee with the family or to take a date. Because of its size, it was also a premier location  for high school graduations, such as James Madison‘s.
