About me:Friends and supporters of the Grand Lady, the famous RKO Keith's Theater in Flushing NY. Once one of the most celebrated palaces of New York City, the RKO Keith's in Flushing, Queens is only a ghost of its former self.
As legend has it, in the 1970's after almost fifty years of showing movies, the theater was closed and sold. Soon after, its owner attempted to demolish it before a hearing could be held to decide its fate.
Having already removed its famous facade and with part of the theater already gutted, the demolition was halted by the city. The owner soon forfeited the property and the damaged and stripped RKO Keith's has sat and waited for its final demolition for over 20 years.
No one has ever decided what to do with the building and it sits to this day. Originally opened in 1928, the RKO Keith's is a 2900 seat theater that has been through some turbulent times , various owners and has sat empty and boarded up for years. Ideas for redevelopment and any ideas on who to contact to save the RKO Keith's can be noted here.
