BROOKLYN - The historic Loew's Kings Theater in Flatbush will soon have a new life.

Loew's Kings, located at 1027 Flatbush Ave., first opened to the public in 1929. After closing its doors in the 1970s, the decaying theater has become an eyesore in the community.

More than 500 workers are striving to refurnish and expand the building to turn it into a multi-purpose performing arts center.

Officials say that the $93 million project will bring about 50 jobs to the area.

The theater is expected to reopen by the end of next year.
