Kingsway Theatre
946 Kings Highway, Brooklyn, NY

The Kingsway opened April 21, 1921 as part of the Century chain, which later merged with RKO. The auditorium was twinned in the 1970s, with the balcony becoming a separate auditorium; it would later be triplexed by dividing the orchestra auditorium, quadded by dividing the balcony, and in 1984, five-plexed by addition of an auditorium - with its own balcony - in the stage house. The Kingsway became part of the Cineplex Odeon chain in 1986. The theater would last operate for Loew's before closing in January, 2001; the building now houses retail space and Touro College.
