Architects: Alfred John Thraves
Located in the Mapperley district north Nottingham. The Majestic Cinema was opened 10th June 1929 with H.B. Warner in “Sorrell and Son”. It was designed by architect A.J. Thraves, and the circle was at street level, due to the lay of the land, with the stalls accessed downstairs. It had a 27 feet wide proscenium. Initially an Electrochord sound system was installed, later a Marshall sound system, and in the mid-1930’s a Western Electric(WE) sound system.
The Majestic Cinema was closed on 7th September 1957 with David Tomlinson in “Carry on Admiral” and Pat O'Brien in “Kill Me Tomorrow”. The building was a furniture store for many years, but by 2012 was empty and unused. By 2018 it housed a tea room in the former circle and The Haunted Museum in the former stalls. In October 2020 Heritage England designated the Majestic Cinema a Grade II Listed building. The museum was closed in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It was announced in June 2021 that it will be closed permanently as the structure of the building has deteriorated.
