Woods Theatre

Three significant grand opening ads for the second location of the original Majestic Theatre which had originally launched December 7, 1908 in the Steele Opera House building.

At left is the 510-512 D Street new Majestic Theatre Building with 482 seats and opening on October 24, 1910 with Nebraska Governor Ashton C. Shallenberger giving the opening speech.

In the middle, T.J. Kempkens takes the venue which had never converted to sound and stopped showing films in 1928 and installing RCA sound showing the Astaire and Rogers film, “Top Hat” on April 12, 1936 at its grand reopening. Films stopped again in 1942 by Tri-State Circuit.

New operator Ira Crain took on the Majestic and, following a refresh, reopened it as the Woods Theatre on December 25, 1951 with “Yesterday’s Hero.”
