Built on the site of an earlier Majestic Theatre (ex-Rex Theatre) which was destroyed by fire in 1927. The Majestic Theatre opened February 26, 1928 with performances by Al Jolson and George Jessel. It had 1,767 seats and was equipped with a Wurlitzer theatre organ. Initially, it was operated by Harry Redman. Later in September 1928 a Vitaphone sound system was installed.
Closed in 1960, it is now owned by the city. Like the rest of downtown East St. Louis, has been in a state of decay for years.
It was Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.
