The MGM Theatre Photograph and Report form for the Majestic in Holyoke lists the address as “205 Main St.” There is a facade photo taken in March 1941. The theatre had a marquee large enough to display both the current attractions and the coming attractions. The 2 current movies posted on the right panel of the marquee are Deanna Durbin in “Nice Girl” plus “Leather Pusher”; on the front panel of the marquee, starting “Next Sun.” are “Virginia” and “The Old Swimming Hole”. There appears to be a vertical blade sign above the marquee. The Report states that the Majestic is not a MGM customer; that it was over 20 years old; that it’s in Fair condition; and has 680 orchestra seats and 420 balcony seats; total: 1,100 seats.

When you read histories like this you wonder why anyone would seal off a balcony?
