On 5/24/19, the Majestic was showing “The Gun Packer”, with Pete Morison, along with a Hearst newsreel and a short about a circus strongman. Other theaters showing films on that day were the New Folly (“A Picture Playhouse of Character”), the Lyric (“A Family Theater – Always a Good Show”), the Palace, the Liberty, Empress, Strand, Overholser and Dreamland.

Newspaper ads from this site reveal that there was also a Majestic Airdome atop the Majestic Theatre. This rooftop theatre would have operated during sizzling summer months when temperatures bacame much too hot for the main auditorium to remain open.

This is a shortcut to the above mentioned photo of the tiny Majestic.
Note the Folly Theatre’s massive stagehouse soaring to the right of Baum’s wall sign.

You’re very welcome. I enjoy researching old movie houses and hotels, and like to share my findings.

An article about a remodeling of the Majestic Theatre on this page of Boxoffice, June 7, 1952, has four small photos of the theater. The article mistakenly says that the house was built in 1889, which is actually the year Oklahoma City was founded.
