Majestic image

Converted from a roller rink to a theater in 1907, the Majestic on Maynard Street focused on vaudeville but also showed movies. Butterfield Theater manager Gerald Hoag moved live performances to the Michigan Theater when it opened in 1928. The Majestic closed in 1942 and Hoag then transferred the entire movie staff to the new State Theater.
