Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Majestic Theatre was opened in 1906 as a vaudeville theatre. It went on to become a silment movie theatre, then was equipped for sound.

After closing as a porn movie theatre, it became a nightclub, but since September 29, 2007, has reverted back to live performances and concerts.

I loved the Majestic before it was sold and converted, except for one thing; I’ve never been in a theater with the rows of seats so damned close together! My knees were FIRMLY dug into the back of the seat in front. That theater HAD to have been designed for an audience of MIDGETS!!!

While that wasn’t a real biggie for ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW, just imagine the AGONY of sitting through ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA and 1900 !!!

It took me DAYS tor recover from those tortures! <<grin>>

As many of these photos indicate, the nightclub function of this theatre has been terminated following some shootings and other issues with violence. It is now mainly a music venue, which I visited last year. Not bad and at least they’ve maintained the marquee.

Why is this listed as closed? Its far from closed. In fact, from the pictures I’ve seen, it looks better than it has in years!
