Located on the corner of New Scotland Road & Russell Street, Nelson, Lancashire. The Majestic Theatre was opened in 1910. It was rebuilt in 1926 to the plans of Nelson based architect Richard Jaques. The Majestic Theatre had a 26 feet wide proscenium and an 18 feet deep stage. Seating was provided in stalls, mezzanine and balcony levels, the balcony having side slips which extended toward the proscenium and contained rows of paired seats. The projection box was located at the rear of the stalls.

By 1934, it was a full time cinema. It was taken over by the Leeds based Star Cinemas chain in June 1960, together with the towns' Grand Theatre and Palace Cinema. It was closed around 1966 and was demolished for the widening of New Scotland Road.
