When I visited the Loew’s Kings in 2002, it was a majestic ruin, a breath-taking ghost of its former self.  It was one of the most impressive sights I’d ever beheld and while I hoped it might be restored one day, I’ll admit that it didn’t seem likely.  Oh me of little faith!  She’s back and looking beautiful and spry at the grand old age of 81.  (All photos from the Cinema Treasures website)
