Malco Theatres' first and only foray into the megaplex scene began with the Majestic Cinema, which opened in 1997 with 11 screens and expanded to 20 in 1998. A technological showcase, the Majestic Cinema featured THX-certified auditoriums, Dolby Digital and DTS audio, large format screens and an auditorium with a custom-designed audio system crafted with Klipsch speakers.

The Majestic Cinema signaled the return of stand-alone multiplexes with elaborate front displays and lobbies, a trend which Malco has continued. Information from Malco Theatres via Wikipedia. Used with permission.

Jimmy Tashie at Malco commissioned this display and wanted it to resemble a hood ornament. It does.

An article in the June 24, 1997, issue of the Memphis Daily News said that Malco’s new 11-screen multiplex, The Majestic, would open in August. The project was designed by the Memphis architectural firm Mark E. Watson & Associates.
