This building is no longer used as a theater. It was converted to offices in the 70’s. The building was remodeled recently with a new front facade and a new interior.

The February 21, 1914, issue of The Moving Picture World had this item about the Majestic:

“The Pastime Theater Company, which purchased the interests of George R. Covell and J. G. Campbell in the Majestic Theater at East Moline announced its intention of adding vaudeville to the moving picture program.”

The “New” Majestic Theatre opened December 26, 1914. It replaced a much smaller, neighboring, converted retail spot also called the Majestic when the older spot was too small to effectively present both films and live vaudeville. The theater’s closed in August of 1954 just prior to its 40th anniversary. The theatre was retrofitted for other purposes.
