The Kingston 4 was a very interesting, though short lived, four-plex: built in the 1970’s and torn down in the 1990’s. The four auditoriums were each an octagon, one was larger than the other three. The construction looked like poured concrete. The lobby was was a square that fit into the space where the octagons joined.
There was no marquee as such, but a large signboard stood on the street. The floors were nicely raked and the hall was clean and nicely-if simply-decorated for the period. It was still showing first run pictures in 1993. It changed to second run soon there after and then one day it was gone. There was a lot of competition in the neighborhood and though the hall backed up to I-40 with a second large signboard facing the interstate and it had plenty of parking, sadly it didn’t make the cut.
