A new photo of the Majestic has been added. It shows the Majestic Theater’s complete “Majestic” sign. From the 1926 version “The Art of Memphis” in the collection of Hugh McVeigh. Used with permission.

Please note that the Majestic Grille indeed has one screen! In operation!

Finally got the address: 145-147 South Main Street. Many thanks to the Memphis Public Library history room for providing the information.

In discussion with others from this web-site, the Majestic does not seem to appear in trade journals after 1941, implying that it had ceased theatrical operation before World War II.

Old newspaper ads refer to the Majestic #1 and #2 and also the OLD Majestic #1 and #2. I infer there were actually 4 theatres operating simultaneously with the same name! In the book “Nickelodeon Theatres and Their Music” there is a photo of a Majestic Theatre in Memphis, but the theatre in the photo is most definately not the building that survives on South Main Street.

Across the street was the Strand Theatre (razed) and the Loew’s State (razed). In the next block north was the Pantages (a.k.a. Warner, razed). In the next block south was the Princess (razed) and the Orpheum (still operating).
