The Majestic was one of the first theatres built and operated by Morris Aaron Lightman who later changed the name of his company to MALCO.

I just added a circa 2000-2010 photo of the buildings, which appears to have part of an older structure still standing at the rear of the former Majestic Theatre’s lot. Possibly the auditorium that was re-purposed. Description is with the photo.

The Majestic closed in 1951 but the building survived until May 1958 when it was razed to make room for the large bank building that now stands on the site.

If you look at the street today, the Uniform Shop at 203 N. Court and the Salvation Army at 205 N. would be directly across the street from the Majestic. Both the theater and the old National Bank building on the corner have been replaced by a newer structure. It looks like the theater was demolished some time ago.
