The Jewel Theatre, which stands a few blocks west of the Kingway Theatre, was opened in 1936. It later became a foreign film house until it was damaged by fire in the 1960’s.
It was completed renovated and reopened as the Cinema Kings Highway with an exclusive Brooklyn showing of "Thoroughly Modern Millie." But in the late-1960’s, the owner found he could make a lot more money running XXX and played "He and She" there for over a year.
The story goes that he ran off with all of the profits and the theatre fell into a dispute over the ownership. Before video shut it down, it was split into two theatres, with regular porn running downstairs and gay porn running in the small balcony. It reopened as a triplex, featuring XXX straight porn in one theatre, gay porn in the second, and obscure foreign classics in the third. This is basically the programming policy today.
