The Majestic Theater was built in the late 1920s. It was operated by Buckley Amusement Enterprises of Shamokin. Buckley also operated the Capitol in Shamokin, the Elk in Mahanoy City and the State Theater in Mt. Carmel. The Majestic was situated next to the Victoria Theater, a much grander edifice.
The Majestic was originally a first run house, showing mainly MGM features into the mid-1950s. It then started showing mainly B movies from Republic, Allied Artists, and Monarch. It had never been equipped to show large screen fare.
It was demolished in the 1960’s to make way for a J.C. Penny department store.
