Majestic Cinemas

The 850-seat Ritz Theatre was opened in 1936 and was still operating in 1969.

The building has since been divided, with a MacDonald’s restaurant operating in the former stalls and the balcony has been twinned and re-named Majestic Cinemas.

Unfortunately this fantastic Art Deco cinema ‘The Ritz’ has been totally wrecked and hardly recognisable from it’s original self. . I found some interesting Interior pics via the Port Macquarie Historical society archives. . Check out pages 9,10,11 in the PDF from this link >>>

Evangelos Hatsatouris [1870-1948] was born in Greece and worked a sea captain before immigrating to Australia in the early 1910s. The Hatsatouris family conducted the White Rose cafe, later known as the Monterey, and established the Empire Theatre and then the Ritz Theatre and other theatres across NSW. His sons Peter and George were involved in the theatre businesses.

Name changed to Majestic Cinemas in(1980’s?). The neon Ritz sign is still there on the outside of the building(possibly heritage listed?).
