Developers F&T Group and SCG America plan to build the first new movie theater that Flushing, Queens has seen in 30 years.

The movie theater will be part of the Tangram development, a mixed-use project at 133-15 39th Avenue, Commercial Observer reported. The project includes four 15- or 16-story buildings with 300 luxury condo units, 80,000 square feet of office space and a hotel. Details on the hotel are not yet available.

The 34,000-square-foot theater will be located in a two-story retail portion of the project, which spans a collective 225,ooo square feet. The theater will be the first to open in Downtown Flushing since the RKO Keith’s Theater closed in 1986. The new theater is expected to have six to eight screens and seat 500 to 800 people. The project will also include a 24,000-square-foot food hall and a beer garden atop the hotel, which Geoff Bailey of SCG Retail TRData LogoTINY specified won’t be “your typical hipster, Brooklyn-type beer garden.”

F&T Group has been pretty active in Queens lately. The company is working with the Rockefeller Group and AECOM Capital on the $1 billion Flushing Commons development. In June, the company filed plans for a 14-story office building in Flushing at 37-12 Prince Street[CO]Kathryn Brenzel
