Opened as the Gay Theatre in 1929. This theater was part of the March Brothers circuit in 1963 and was later twinned. It was closed in April 2009.

It was re-opened as a single screen, renamed Majestic Theatre in December 2010.

Right on Scott,everyone has their right to speak in America,you do not have to agree with them but that is their right the same as yours.Now we are off-topic so maybe we should say something about the March Twin Theatre or maybe the thought police will get us too.Too bad this theatre closed it should have been saved.

Then you have comments like those on the 16th Street Lauderhill page.

Where are they supposed to draw the line?

Scott, the reason you do not see a problem is that so many comments were removed.

You make a good point there Al,by the way were Rodneys comments deleted or are they still there I have not looked, I took you side on that issue,“they are what they are” you said, to use your words.I do not mean to make an issue of such a small thing but it seems like selective censorship is happening here.Also Where are they supposed to draw the line?I ask who are they? I guess I will be banned for expressing my thoughts.Help keep the dicussion productive.Or your comments will be removed. I would not want to have the job of removing all the off-topic comments on this site because I have read many,Maybe they will remove this comment,time will tell.

Well, if there were comments that Warren made that got deleted, then perhaps I don’t know the whole story. All I can say is that I never read anything from him that irritated me. I found most of his posts quite helpful. Looking at the comments posted for this theatre, it appears Warren was attacked without provocation. Seems like many message boards, even this one, will eventually degenerate into name calling and childish arguments. I just want to talk about the theatres, and I try to ignore the inane comments.

I with you Scott, you can always skip over the posts that do not intrest you, now back to the March Twin.

Good news: through the concentrated efforts of the town’s citizens, this theater is back in business! It is now been renamed the Majestic Theater, with a new marquee and the addition of a vertical sign, has been returned to its original single screen status, has 3D capability, and has a rebuilt stage to accommodate live performances. Here is the story: View link

I just interviewed Melanie Loggins, who acts as general manager, of The Majestic for a documentary about independent theaters I’m currently working on. The Majestic is a beautiful little theater, and completely embodies the character and passion of all those who are involved with it.
