The Majestic House apartment building is at 201 E. Broad Street. Although extensively altered, some of the building’s details on display in vintage photos are still recognizable.

This item from the January 5, 1924, issue of Exhibitors Herald is about a combination theater-hotel project to be built in Tamaqua:This web page cites an item published by a Tamaqua newspaper in 1923 saying that George Higgins was planning to build a hotel and theater in Tamaqua. Both items must pertain to the Majestic. I’ve found references to the Higgins Amusement Company of Shamokin, Pennsylvania, operating houses called the Majestic in Pottsville and Gettysburg, so it was apparently the company’s favored name.
The former hotel which included the theatre at 201 East Broad Street (corner of Pine) is now known as Majestic House.
Attached is an early postcard image of the Majestic.
