The Kings Theatre in Flatbush announced Thursday that its inaugural year of programming will kick off with an opening concert by internationally acclaimed artist Diana Ross, as the newly revitalized entertainment palace opens to the public for the first time in nearly 40 years.

The inaugural performance by Ross on Feb. 3, 2015 follows an extensive $93.9 million
restoration and renovation of the architectural gem, formerly known as Loew’s Kings Theatre. The largest
theatre in Brooklyn with more than 3,000 seats, the Kings Theatre will serve as a cultural and economic cornerstone of the community and an extension of the borough’s cultural renaissance.

The Feb. 3 event will begin at 8 p.m., and tickets go on sale Dec. 12 at 12 p.m. at,, 800-745-3000 and all Ticketmaster outlets.

The theatre’s 2015 programming will feature a wide range of performances by major international, national and local talents across a range of disciplines. As part of its opening celebration, the Kings Theatre will offer free events, including open houses and theatre tours — providing the opportunity for New Yorkers to view the meticulous renovation and restoration up close. An exciting line-up of performances and community events will be announced in the coming weeks.

“One of the most beloved movie palaces of old New York, the Kings Theatre was once a centerpiece of the Flatbush community, and a major force in Brooklyn’s cultural landscape,” said Matthew Wolf, Executive Director of the Kings Theatre.
