Location:
The Majestic Theatre is located on the north side of 44th Street, west of Broadway near 8th Avenue. It is number 27 on The Broadway Map

Design:
The Majestic Theatre is six stories high, with a pair of wrought iron fire escape balconies for decoration. The theater has stadium-style seating in the orchestra and a steep balcony. The boxes are staggered step style on the side walls. The Majestic Theatre has been renovated to maintain its elegance over the years, yet the auditorium looks very similar to the way it did when the theater was originally built.

Background:
The Majestic Theatre opened on March 28, 1927, and for many years it was the largest theater in the Times Square area. Designed by architect Herbert J. Krapp, the Majestic Theatre was the sixth (and final) theater built by construction moguls the Chanin Brothers. The pair lost their theatrical empire during the Great Depression, when several of their houses were acquired by the Shuberts. In the early decades, the Majestic Theatre was filled with transfers from other Shubert theaters, and its tickets were sold at a discount.
