I don’t see any mention here, but Brian DePalma used the theater as a significant location for his cult classic PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE.

Three Stooges Texas Connection

The Three Stooges performed here during the vaudeville area which would have been during 1921-1934 for them. At the time they were working with Ted Healy and the act was called “Ted Healy and his Stooges”. Healy was the star and was the most successful vaudeville performer in the country making $9000 a week in the 20s. Healy started out as a cartoonist for the Houston Chronicle and met vaudeville performers and entered show business. You can hear a radio interview with Stooge Moe Howard talking about when they performed at the Dallas Majestic Theater and did a joke about Baylor University and the people of Texas where planning on throwing eggs at them! Its on the DVD Stooges Men Behind the Mayhem

Strictly a live performance venue with great seating, sight lines and sound. Projection capabilities are long gone.

Forgot to mention seeing Charlton Heston here in his football flick, “Number One” in 1969.

Saw many films at the Majestic over the years – first one I remember is “North to Alaska.” Then “McLintock;” Then “A Hard Day’s Night” opening with about 2,000 screaming teenage girls rushing the stage to kiss the close-ups of Paul and John; Then “Thunderball,” “The War Wagon” world premiere with John Wayne in person, and I believe the last picture I saw there was Burt Lancaster in “Valdez Is Coming” in 1971. For some reason, missed the final feature, “Live and Let Die” with Roger Moore as 007 (that’s probably why I missed it) in 1973. Hated to see it close, but glad the old girl survives.

I am looking for info on my grandfather who had a contract in 1929 with a Dallas theater Co. doing vaudeville. Can anyone help me with which possible theater co that might have been?. He was a violinist as well as an actor. Thank you for any assistance, SD
