The Majestic Theatre was built in 1917. It was operated by Buckley Amusement Enterprises of Shamokin. Buckley also operated the Capitol Theatre in Shamokin, the Elk Theatre in Mahanoy City and the State Theatre in Mt. Carmel. The Majestic Theatre was situated next to the Victoria Theatre, a much grander edifice. Around 1921 the Majestic Theatre was equipped with a 4 manual Moller organ.
The Majestic Theatre was originally a first run house, showing mainly MGM features into the mid-1950’s. 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.
