Upon its opening in 1929, the Loew's Kings theatre was one of the most exquisite theaters in the nation. It officially opened its doors to the public on September 7, 1929. Its monumental restoration started in 2006 and marks the rebirth of a historic venue and its transformation into a state-of-the-art live performance theater.
