May The Fours Be With You
Updated On: Aug 09, 2016

Movies returned to the Kings Theatre on August 7, 2016 in an epic way, as Alamo Drafthouse Cinema sponsored a Star Wars Trilogy showing of Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi on a 17'x40' screen. The company is waiting on permits to open Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Brooklyn, a more upscale film and food venue than your average theater.

The sponsors were impressed not only by the majesty of the theater but by the hospitality of the staff and crew. Local 4 stagehands managed to squeeze two projectors and an AC unit up the narrow stairs to the followspot booth, and integrated the needs of the cinema into the line plot of another show, Bring It! Live which appeared on stage the night before. Alamo will definitely be back for more screenings.

The Kings Theatre is being utilized more and more for location work as well. Local 4 and Local 52 have worked together on television episodes and commercials in the space, including this must-see piece starring Christopher Walken.
