Thanks you so much for that link, ZiegfeldMan.
I’m sorry to hear that things are going so slowly (or not at all). I’ve been hoping to be able to show my aunt, the last manager of the theater, some pictures of the renovation. I’m sure it would make her happy to see some progress. She’s in her late 90s and living upstate. Even if the renovation is completed soon, I doubt she’d be able to visit the theater. A pity.
I was surprised to see a picture of the Kings on the front page of AM New York today. Hopefully, it will cause some movement in the fight to save it and many other NY treasures.
It was wonderful to read about other people’s experiences and especially the fond memories of my Aunt Dorothy who I will always think of as the Queen of the Kings.
For those who are interested, yes, she’s still with us. I visited her several years ago and couldn’t believe the amount of memorabilia she has including the pictures of herself with numerous movie stars she kept under the glass top of her desk at the Kings.
Good luck to those still fighting the good fight.
