The Majestic Theatre opened in April 1921 as a vaudeville theatre. It was built by Karl Hoblitzelle, whose Interstate Amusement Company built and operated venues in Texas, Mississippi, Louisiana and Arkansas, and designed by John Eberson, one of the foremost designers of theatres in the early 20th Century.
As the vaudeville era came to an end in the 1930s, Hoblitzelle began to present movies in his theatres. The Majestic hosted flm premieres with big stars in attendance, including Jimmy Stewart, Gregory Peck, John Wayne and Audie Murphy. In 1973, the Majestic went dark.
The Hoblitzelle Foundation gifted the Majestic to the City of Dallas in January 1976, and after a major restoration, the theatre reopened in 1983 as a performing arts venue.
Currently used by national promoters to present performing arts events, concerts and comedy shows, the theatre is also available for corporate meetings, nonprofit fundraisers and private functions.
It is managed by the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs.
