In 1913, the Majestic Theatre was one of three Sacramento movie houses being operated by Charles William Godard, the others being the Acme, which he had opened in 1903, and the Liberty. In 1915, he opened the Godard Theatre on J Street.

A card in the California Index says that the opening of the Majestic Theatre is mentioned in the April, 1910, issue of Grizzly Bear, which was a regional monthly magazine. The owner of the building was named Jake Zemansky.

The Sacramento section of an 1898 California telephone directory lists Jake Zemansky as the proprietor of an establishment called The Palm, at 225 K Street. Whatever The Palm was, it must have been a classy joint of its type, since it had a telephone in 1898. And, apparently, it was profitable enough that Jake could afford to build this fancy nickelodeon in 1910.
