Majestic Theatre, Fremantle

The Majestic Theatre opened on 21st December 1916. The Majestic Theatre closed on 25th July 1938, in anticipation of the opening of Hoyts Fremantle Theatre. In fear that the Majestic Theatre lease would be taken over by another company who might operate in competition with their new theatre, Hoyts employees destroyed the the fixtures and fittings on the day they vacated the premises, and opened the next day in the new theatre.

The facade is still there over what is now Manning Arcade. The two balconies are still there with the letters M and T(Majestic Theatre) logo on the front of them. The cinema offices are now the Five Star Tattoo shop.

That part of High street in front of the Majestic theatre building became a pedestrian mall in(1970’s or 1980’s, i think?).
