This is an earlier second Majestic Theatre in the city, which opened on 21 February 1910 as a vaudeville theatre, with movies as part of the program. It was built by Karl St. John Hoblitzelle for his Interstate Circuit. It had two balconies, the upper one reserved for African-Americans only. It was renamed the Palace Theatre when Eberson’s Atmospheric style Majestic Theatre opened in 1923.
It was later operated by Paramount Pictures Inc. through their subsidiary Will Horwitz, but was listed as closed in 1943. It was re-opened under new management in 1945, as the Neuvo Palacio Theatre, and finally closed on 3 April 1946. It was converted into newspaper offices for the Houston Chronicle. There are some excellent photos of the theatre in the book"Cinema Houston".
