Majestic Theater, Gettysburg
Eighty years ago, the doors of the Majestic Theater opened for the first time, welcoming audiences to the largest vaudeville and silent movie theater in south-central Pennsylvania. Built by Henry Scharf as an annex to the historic Gettysburg Hotel, the theater seated 1,200 patrons and proudly served as the cultural crossroads of commerce, college, and community.
For the last 80 years, the Majestic is where the Adams County community has gathered to watch its favorite Hollywood stars, win free prizes on Bank Night, smooch in the balcony, and sip a Coke at the Majestic Grill.
In the 1950's, the Majestic Theater stepped onto the world stage when President Dwight D. Eisenhower and First Lady Mamie Eisenhower regularly attended performances, often in the company of world leaders. The theater's ballroom/gymnasium, always a popular spot for young people, was often used by the White House press corps for news conferences whenever President Eisenhower was in residence at his Gettysburg farm.
In November 2005, the Majestic now beautifully restored to its original grandeur once again welcomed audiences with an extraordinary showcase of the performing arts and cinema.
