I found a 1929 photo of the Majestic Theatre on Main Street, but do not see a page for it yet. Did it have another name at any point? And does anyone know the correct address? If so I will create the page.
It has Majestic on the marquee, and Broadway on a blade sign.

Any hopes of renovation dashed in one dismissive sentence.
New construction is all about egos.
They can’t be the “visionaries” they think they are if they recycle something.
I’m willing to bet they’ve already planned for a shorter tower.
So it will look like a concession to the community when they complain about it’s size.

Well this is disturbing.
Drop the 37 stories idea, renovate the Varsity which is encapsulated behind the GAP, and they’d be heroes to the community.
Don’t believe them when they say it is in “too poor shape to reuse”.
From this rendering, it looks like they would annex the alley and tear down almost the whole block going North.
