“Neoclassical” should be added to the styles list, since that’s pretty much the top two-thirds of the facade. Only the lower third is Art Deco, due to a renovation in the 30’s.

The Majestic closed in 1951 but the building survived until May 1958 when it was razed to make room for the large bank building that now stands on the site.

The theater has been under restoration and is open once again for community events and concerts. Since it reopened, several movies have been shown there during the annual George Lindsey Film Festival.

The Joy-Lan was torn down in the 80’s and Christ Chapel was built on the site.

The performing arts live on at the site of the Norwood though… the site of the theater is now the 7 Points “Pocket Park” where outdoor plays and concerts are held occasionally.
