This former theater is now a Walgreens drug store. Sad transformation.

I recently drove past the old theater and noticed that large squares have been cut through the outer walls on the Coney Island side and the Kings Highway front. My guess is that the new tenant wants lots of natural sunlight.

The Kingsway opened on April 27, 1921, it was first twinned in the seventies eventually becoming a fiveplex by 1984. Originally part of the Long Island Century circuit which later merged with RKO and then was taken over by Cineplex Odeon in 1986. The Kingsway was closed by Loews Cineplex in January 2001. It is currently slated to become a Walgreens Drug Store and a health club.
