The Loew’s Kings Theatre – one of five New York Wonder Theatres – was designed by the architectural firm of Rapp and Rapp and opened in September of 1929. Left abandoned 35 years ago, it has been lovingly restored and brought back to its original splendor by the efforts of David Anderson of Ace Theatrical Group. Anderson put together a team consisting of Martinez & Johnson Architects, Schuler Shook Theatre Planners, Evergreene Architectural Arts, and Gilbane Construction. IWEISS was pleased to join the team to bring this gem back to life.
Our work fills the building from the front entrance to the rear wall of the stage house.
The work consisted of:
- New Stage Rigging
- Orchestra Pit Lift
- Chandelier Winches
- Painted House Curtain and Grand Valance
- (Paint by Hudson Scenic Studios)
- Decorative Drapery throughout the Lobby and Auditorium
- Wall Upholstery
- Stage Drapery
