Here’s another photo of the Majestic, taken around September 1965 (which indicates the theatre was still open then, but would close shortly thereafter):

Two pictures from the City of Vancouver archives, one showing the installation of the new signage converting the theatre to the Odeon Hastings and the other of the theatre as the Majestic. View link

There’s a new building on the site of the old Pantages aka Beacon, Majestic and Hastings Odeon. It’s ironic that the one feet wide bricked section of the old theatre is still there between the two buildings.

Chuck1231: The photo you show was the Odeon Theatre that was on Granville Street. The Hastings Odeon was on Hastings Street directly across from the old Rex Theatre (now Army & Navy). This Hastings Odeon is best known as the second Pantages Theatre erected in Vancouver.

The November 19, 1921, issue of The Music Trade Review reported that a Robert-Morton organ would be installed in the Pantages Theatre at Vancouver. I’m not sure if this was done then or not, as the PSTOS page for the Pantages says a Robert-Morton was installed in the house in 1925.
