Group forms to protect historic building

March 16, 2009 10:30AM

A grassroots organization, “Friends of the RKO Keith’s Flushing,” has formed to protect the RKO Keith’s building, a former movie theater. The building, at 135-27 Northern Boulevard in Flushing, is for sale after the current owner failed to develop the site into a planned luxury condominium. But a profitable sale of the property is unlikely, the group said in a statement. The group, which has over 1,000 members, hopes to preserve the building and find a use for it that fits with its past role as a theater. TRD
