The Majestic Theatre was the first of WF’s four large theaters with balconies and also the first to be demolished, which it was in the mid-1950’s in order to provide a parking lot for the Kemp Hotel at 8th & Scott (itself since demolished for a Holiday Inn).

It was also the only one of the three to operate during the vaudeville and silent film era and thus also had a small orchestra pit and an organ (whereabouts unknown). It was part of the Paramount-affiliated Interstate Circuit, as were the Gem Theatre, State Theatre, Strand Theatre, and Wichita Theatre.

From the early 1900s a postcard view of the Kemp Hotel that dwarfs the Majestic Theatre which is next door.

Wasn’t the Palace the Majestic before? The building showing the Palace was the same as the Majestic or at least looks like the same building.

I should have asked was the Majestic named the Palace before. I remember going to the Majestic in the 1940s but don’t remember a Palace Theatre in WF.
