Originally constructed as a movie theatre in 1931, the theatre was extensively renovated in 2017-2019 by its current owner, Mountain Top Music Center. Mountain Top Music Center, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, operates a community music school on the second floor, annually produces 12 to 20 musical events in the Majestic Theatre, and operates the Majestic Café, an intimate piano bar/jazz café in one of the building’s storefronts. The Majestic Café currently offers a weekly Friday night jazz series. MTMC rents the Majestic Theatre to select outside groups, primarily nonprofits, for their own performances.
The stage is approximately 20 feet deep and 39 feet wide, and features a 15 foot tall x 32 foot wide proscenium and a 31 foot high stage house. Seating is in 18 rows on a 1:12 raked floor with continental aisles, in a 39 foot wide, 70 foot deep house. The last row will accommodate up to 5 wheelchair users and their companions.
A Steinway model B grand piano graces the stage, and is available for performances. The FOH sound system includes an Allen & Heath SQ-6 mixing console and Martin PA speakers. The Majestic Theatre has livestream and recording capability, with two remotely-controlled cameras on the side trees, one on the rear wall, and two movable cameras managed by a Blackmagic switcher and ISO recorder. The adjoining greenroom offers an available video feed of the live performance. A double door leads directly to the stage, providing step-free load-in access for performers.
Beverages are typically available in the Majestic Café before performances and during intermissions. In addition to operating as a concession during theatre performances, the Majestic Café serves as an intimate 45-55 seat performance venue.
