Previous Names: Majestic Theatre, Roxy Theatre
The Majestic Theatre opened in 1915 seating 1,000. It was located in the Ballard neighborhood. In 1922 the theatre was remodeled and a 2/4 Robert Morton organ installed. It was given the new name of the Roxy Theatre in the early-1940’s. In 1949 it received a remodel by architect B. Marcus Priteca with the seating capacity reduced to 465 and a new name, the Bay Theatre.
When the theatre closed in 1998, it had the distinction of being the Northwest’s oldest operating movie theatre. A local businessman bought the theatre in 1998 with the intention of re-opening the Bay Theatre, but it couldn’t pass fire inspections and was demolished.
In the summer of 2000, a new theatre was built on the site and named the Majestic Bay Theatre.
