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.

I stopped in today, one of the regulars told me it has been sold and they expect to close the deal in July at the latest. So unless the deal falls through it will be curtains by this summer.

Thanks……I will visit over weekend. Need to cruise in heels one more time.

Patrons now say it will be out of business by the end of the month. Employees are saying June, but the audience flow is down to a trickle. Maybe not even covering operating costs.

Havent been at this theatre in a while. Always had a good time in the “glory” days. Does anyone remember this young guy who always “showed off” to the patrons and a crowd would form around him to watch and he would get everybody off…he even useto go to the upstairs theatre (what useto be the balcony in the old Jewel theatre days) and strip on the stage (mostly down to his white briefs) while patrons would watch him. I just recently saw him again at this theatre for what maybe his last time. What a hot guy!!!What a huge d—k!

Thanks Over9. I remember him, even had the pleasure of sampling that huge d—k. I plan on going to theater one last time later today. Do they still allow crossdressers ?

The long goodbye.

I was there yesterday. The rumour is it will be open until June or July, but an employee could not confirm this.

I also went there last night.Not bad.I had a good time…and I was lucky to see that hot Italian boy there who “strips” for the pleasure of others. Most of the time the employees who work there stop him in action but last night they left him alone. Hot exhibitionist guy with tremendous d—k who strips in front of an audience on the stage below the screen in the “upstairs” theatre where the balcony use to be in the old Jewel theatre days. He had the biggest audience I ever saw him have watching him. Will surely miss him when this place closes!!!! Anyone remember him???? Or know where else he goes to do his “thing”
