Opening its doors to audiences for the first time on September 7, 1929, in the Flatbush neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York, near the intersection of Flatbush and Tilden Avenues, King's Theatre originally featured both movie screenings and live stage performances. In desperate need of renovations, the theater closed in 1977 and remained closed until it was finally completely restored to its original state on January 23, 2015. The 3,676-seat theater originally combined movies and live vaudeville shows, but now, it is primarily oriented toward putting on stage plays and live music performances. The theater has been a legendary mainstay of New York entertainment throughout its history. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the subject of a documentary film. Since the theater reopened, you can once again be a part of history. Grab your King's Theatre tickets at StubHub.
