The Majestic Theater formally located at 406 S Main in 1921. It started as a silent film theater, and was the first Tulsa theater to convert to talkies in 1929. It featured a lavish interior and contained an organ. The automobile pictured is a wire-wheeled Balie. Oh, how I'd love to go back in time to visit this place!

 

The front was remodeled just before World War II, but the original sign was kept. The marquee advertises "Something in the Wind" starring Deanna Durbin and Donald O'Connor. 

P.S.  Why did we tear this down?
