The Majestic Theatre opened on November 23, 1903, with 1,800 seats. The interior decorations were by the Chicago based Echert Brothers. It became a movie theatre in 1915. It was operated by the Butterfield Theaters chain from 1929 until July 1974. The Civic Theatre company moved into the building in 1979, reopening in October 1979.
It is one of the oldest community theaters in the country. With more than 6,000 season ticket holders, it is the largest community theater in the state of Michigan and the second largest in the United States. During a single season the theater reaches almost 100,000 people.
Each season there are a mix of main stage productions, two productions for children, and various other special events around the community. The theater is currently under the leadership of twelve professional staffers and more than thirty guest artists, and numerous local volunteers.
