Majestic Theater (Official)
Architects: William Harold Lee
Previous Names: Sovereign Majestic Theater
The Majestic Theater opened July 9, 1910 as a nickelodeon with a mixture of serials, westerns, and vaudeville. The theater closed in 1930.
After laying dormant for nine years, its interior was gutted in 1939 and then used primarily as a farmer’s market until 1995.
It was purchased by The Majestic Theatre Association in 2001 and the group is now seeking nearly $500,000 to turn the former nickelodeon into a performing and cultural arts center.
The theater’s naming rights were sold in May 2002 to Sovereign Bank in exchange for a $175,000 donation.
Recent renovations include the removal of a newer facade which covered up its original exterior. The original facade is now one of the focal points of the renovation project.
