When the Kings closed in 1977, its lavish auditorium remained eerily intact, lying in silence behind its shuttered facade for more  than 30 years while adaptive reuse plans came and went. But a $70 million effort is now underway to return the theatre to its former glory. Set to reopen in 2015, the haunting movie palace at 1027 Flatbush Avenue will be among the largest of its kind in New York. Find out more about the restoration here, and be sure to take a glimpse beyond the final curtain.
