On Monday, March 16th at 6pm, we’ll be bringing guests on a special tour of the Brooklyn Kings Theatre, which just re-opened after a multi-year renovation. With so many of New York City’s theaters lost, repurposed or in a state of abandonment, it’s a real feat to have this 93,000 square foot theater open again to the public. Moreover, photographer and Untapped Cities columnist Matt Lambros from After the Final Curtain has been documenting the theater since before the restoration until now. Here are some before and after images, showing what visitors can see on our Behind the Scenes NYC tour, led by Christina de Rose, NYCEDC Senior Vice President who led the project and Matt Wolf, Executive Director of Kings Theatre. Get tickets here.
