Following last year’s successful tour of the Loew’s United Palace Theatre on 175th Street, we are venturing into the grand opulence of another historic movie house, this time in Jamaica, Queens. The Loew’s Valencia opened in 1929 and was the first of the Loew’s  ”Wonder Theatres,” five buildings lavishly designed to highlight the preeminence of the Loew’s company in and around New York City. (The Kings Theatre, one of the five, is in the midst of a massive restoration and will reopen as a theatre in 2015.) Designed in Spanish Colonial and pre-Columbian styles with spectacular terra cotta facade details, the theatre was once the most successful theatre in Queens. Closed as a movie house in 1977, Tabernacle of Prayer for All has called this building home for more than 30 years.
