CROWN HEIGHTS - A historic theater is now home to a Rastafarian church in Crown Heights.

The former Black Lady Theater is on Nostrand Avenue and the Nya-Binghi Church uses the theater's second floor as a place to worship.

Members say the religion was started by an African queen named Nya-Binghi. They say drumming is a major part of their service, which is held on Saturdays at 9 p.m. and lasts through the night.
