This is the first time I have ever read that a theatre was demolished to make way for another theatre!

“Mike Hanley, six feet tall, and large of frame, always wore a 10 gallon hat as he walked back and forth in front of his movie house, The Majestic… inviting the public to come in and see his pictures. reminding them that it was just 5 or 10 minutes until the next showing began.”
