On Saturday December 16, we have arranged a rare tour of the former Loew’s Valencia movie palace!
Located in Jamaica, Queens, the Valencia opened in 1929 as the first of Loew’s flagship Wonder Theaters. Now operated by the Tabernacle of Prayer for All People, the 3500 seat theater—with all its 16th Century Spanish motifs lovingly intact—will transport you to another land and era in cinematic history. You do not want to miss this event. Tour will be given by the Tabernacle's legendary Sister Forbes.
More on the theater is here, here, and here.
After the tour, join us for samosas at neighborhood hotspot Vintage Curry.
