The July 30, 1910, issue of The Film Index had this item about the Majestic Theatre:

“The Majestic Motion Picture Place, of Pottsville, Pa., which is conceded to be one of the most modern in the country, opened July 9. Besides having the best pictures obtainable, the management has installed an $850 Matchless Cunningham Player.”
The current operators of the Majestic could install a new Matchless Cunningham Piano, too, but I don’t think there’s a player model anymore.

The theatre was constructed in 1910 and designed by William Howard Lee. It is one of two existing Beaux-Arts reverse screen theaters in Pennsylvania.

The renovated theatre has 224 seats.
