Behold, Brooklyn's Magnificently Restored Kings Theatre

Kings_250

Tuesday, January 27, 2015

From Curbed.com | By Spencer Peterson

Two years ago to the day that New York City embarked on a $94 million restoration of the Loew’s Kings Theatre in Flatbush, the institution reopened its doors and reclaimed its standing as Brooklyn’s largest theater. The restoration was painstaking: when it began in 2013, the theater had already been sitting vacant for four decades, a time during which looters plundered everything that wasn’t bolted down (and most of the things that were), and nature found its way into the neglected structure. “The carpets used to kind of squish when you walked around,” Jeff Greene of EverGreene Architectural Arts said recalling the building in its pre-restoration state, when, during inclement weather, water would gush through the ceiling, down the balconies, and pool amidst the theater seats.

By NATE CHINEN

Entering the homestretch of the memorial concert “Friends of Jeff Golub,” which ran the better part of four hours at the B. B. King Blues Club on Wednesday night, the keyboardist Jason Miles offered an encomium, brief and to the point. “Whatever he did, whether it was smooth or it was blues, there was a commitment,” he said of Mr. Golub, a crisp and stylistically fluid guitarist who died on Jan. 1 at 59.
