The Majestic is listed in Frank Cullen’s book Vaudeville Old & New as one of four Reading houses that were at one time or another on the Keith-Albee vaudeville circuit (the other three were the Hippodrome, the Rajah, and Wilmer & Vincent’s Orpheum.)

The pictures of the tickets shown above are for the Majestic Theatre in Mt Penn and not the Majectic Theatre on Oley Street in downtown Reading. I am fairly certain the Majestic in downtown Reading was long gone before prices got to the amount shown on that ticket.

The Majestic in Mt Penn is often referred to as being in Reading but Mt Penn is a separate suburb several miles to the East of Reading proper.

The Cinema Treasures listing for the Majestic in Mt Penn (also known as Mount Penn) is found here:

The Majestic closed in 1918 and was converted to an auto repair garage in 1919.

Address should be 108 E. Oley Street. Google has no street view, but Bing maps has one. There are still two overhead doors on the front, so perhaps it’s still a garage, though if so it isn’t listed on the Internet.
