Brooklyn is getting a whole lot classier come February 3rd, when the timeless Diana Ross performs the grand opening concert at the newly restored Kings Theatre in Flatbush. Even before their debut, the brand new venue has already booked such luminaries as Crosby Stills and Nash, Widespread Panic, and the legendary vocalist Gladys Knight.

The Kings Theatre was designed as one of five ‘Loew’s Wonder Theatres’ in the NY/NJ area in 1929, with an interior inspired by the Palace of Versailles and the Paris Opera House. Running continuously through 1977, the theatre was a beloved Brooklyn neighborhood destination, and several notable entertainers, including Sylvester Stallone and Henry Winkler, worked as ushers at the famous venue.

After closing its doors in 1977, ownership of the Kings Theatre was assumed by the City of New York in 1983. The city was able to repair the integrity of the structure, and, in 2008, the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) began searching for a corporate entity to convert the unused space into a profitable cultural center. Five years later, the Kings Theatre Redevelopment Company, which contained members of ACE Theatrical Group, the Goldman Sachs Urban Investment Group, and the National Development Council, launched an effort to restore The Kings Theatre to its former glory.

With mere weeks until the venue’s reopening, it’s safe to say their efforts were successful. The Kings Theatre will serve as the staging grounds for what can only be considered a thoroughly diverse artistic calendar, offering everything from tasty Widespread Panic jams to performances of The Nutcracker by the Moscow Ballet.

“As a renewed center of culture in the heart of Brooklyn, this architectural treasure will present valuable community benefits while supporting New York City’s continued rise as a global capital of commerce and culture,” said NYCEDC President Kyle Kimball in a statement. Judging by the photos provided, this statement only undersells the sheer majesty of the Kings Theatre. To have such a cultural hub can only be a boon for the local artistic community.

So, when the renowned Diana Ross takes the stage on February 3rd, a new chapter in the Kings Theatre legacy will be written. This hallowed space is already scheduled to play host to some extraordinary performing artists, and is sure to play an important role in music history.
