Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

In 1910, Sam Schwartz purchased a former pool hall, renamed it the Majestic Theatre, installed benches and projection equipment, and rented films from the film drummers that came through town. Sam sold the tickets, swept the floors, slept in the theatre, and did everything except run the projection equipment. With 16,000 National Guard troops garrisoned at Eagle Pass during the Mexican Revolution of 1910, the business was quite a success.
