The 1950 edition of Film Daily Yearbook gives the address of the Major Theater as Main Street, Washington. KS. However this does not map today and has possibly been re-named?
According to the link posted above by Miss Melba Toast, C.H. Swiercinsky came to Washington in 1921 and purchased the Majestic Theatre. This was demolished and the new Major Theater was erected on the site;opening in 1936.
After closing in the mid-1980’s it was burnt down in the late-1980’s and never replaced
A complete history of the Major Theatre can be read on the link below;
The Major Theatre seated 350 people.
It is really awesome to see my great-grandparents theater on the web! Thanks for documenting it!
