Yep it sure was, about 50 years ago…sadly. There are almost no surviving grand downtown houses any more anywhere. The Ritz and Orpheum were on the same side (south) of the same street…maybe 5th? The Majestic was on the north side and just 1 or 2 blocks away. I’m pretty sure it was not on the same street as the R&O. By the way we also went to the Delman and Will Rogers pretty often, I don’t know when those were demolished…I imagine one could Google it.
That address is wrong, the Majestic was on an east-west street, not Main. I’m pretty sure it was 4th, just east of Boston. I know it was ‘around the corner’ from the Ritz and Orpheum both on the same street As an adolescent, I and my friends who lived around 36th & Lewis often walked, biked or bused into town to go to movies at all 3 of these (and pig out on Coney’s at the original joint) frequently. Sometimes at Nelson’s ‘buffeteria’ too.
