From what I saw in the videos both theaters seemed to be in nice shape. But they need to empty out the crap on the Majestic’s main floor.

there is an excellent urban exploration video of this building and walk-through of both auditoriums. it was posted last month.there is no mention of the location in the video however i recognized it from the various pictures that i have seen and i’m sure that there are very few large double auditorium theaters in the u.s. it is worth checking out. that place still seems to be in very nice shape!!

you don’t realize how big this place is until you see it without the tarp that seperates the ground floor .

This place seems huge after seeing the drone footage.It seems to me it would be a prime for restoration as a Broadway venue or concert.

I saw both The Shining and Altered States here. While it was one auditorium, it was among the best movie going experiences that I had. I say among because I saw a re-release of Oklahoma at our Cooper Theatre in mn

I’m posting the same comment to different theaters.Check out “Ncis Los Angeles” In tonights episode the climax takes place in an abandoned theater in L.A. The name of the theater was the Palace. There was a lot of shots. of the auditorium and the theater in general.

The Kohl’s is new. They flattened the theater before building the Kohl’s.I saw a picture in the paper. Can anyone tell me why this theater bears a resemblance to the Cooper theater?

I saw the first Superman and Empire Strikes Back here. This theater, looked like it was architecturally related to the Cooper theaters.They seemed to have similar lay outs. What is the deal with abc were they connected in any way to the network?

I saw Oklahoma! at the Cooper in the main theater sometime during the mid eighties, It was great. I don’t know if it was in 35mm or 70mm, It was rereleased during the movies anniversary.
