The Majestic Theatre was located on S. Pruitt Street and Main Street in the heart of the business district. It was a block and a half from the much larger Collins Theatre. It was operating prior to 1941.

The Majestic Theatre was still operating in the early-1950’s but after its closing it was sub-divided and used for retail. Info for this theatre from the Arkansas Historical Society magazine.

The Majestic Theatre was listed at 215 S. Pruett Street in the 1916 Paragould City Directory. There was also a Majestic Air Dome at 120 W. Emerson Street, which was probably the site where the Capitol Theatre was later built. Block (or Black) & Whitsitt were the proprietors of both theaters. They also operated the Grand Theatre at 218 S. Pruett.

The February 24, 1915 issue of The Insurance Press reported a fire causing $5,700 damage at the Majestic Theatre in Paragould. That’s the earliest mention of the Majestic I’ve found so far.
