Originally opened in 1904 as the Majestic Theatre. It was renamed Perry Theatre on October 11, 1921 when it was taken over by the Rowland and Clark Theaters chain. By 1941, it had been renamed Shea’s Theatre. On October 11, 1967 it was renamed Holiday Theatre but this was short lived as it was closed in 1968.
This theatre was a casualty of 1960’s “urban renewal”. Those who have lived in Erie since at least the 1950’s or 1960’s will recall that this theatre was disgracefully torn down with the Lawrence Hotel and a popular candy company at 926 State Street.
