Second Acts

The mindblowingly beautiful restoration of the Loew's King's Theater on Flatbush Avenue is coming along, on track to open in January after two years of painstaking work with a $94 million price tag. But one group isn't content with the gilded details as they stand: the New York Theater Organ Society wants to bring back the original, 1920s-era pipe organ. Moving the seven-ton instrument from storage in Oklahoma would require brute strength and $650,000, which the society is currently trying to raise. [Brooklyn Paper; previously]
