The Majestic Theatre (not to be confused with the 1927 Broadway theatre of the same name) was originally intended to be the beginning of a new uptown theatre district that never materialized. The theatre was converted to film in 1923. It operated under a number of different names before being used by NBC as a TV studio starting in 1949. It was demolished in 1954 to make way for Robert Moses' New York Coliseum, which in turn was demolished in 2000 to make way for the Time Warner Center.
Next: Circle Theatre
