Below the marquee, we can see a little of the music-themed decorations up for the holidays.
It’s been rumored that buildings could be split between The Majestic Theater and the existing Legends of Hollywood look on the other side, which was also recently refurbished. While the marquee has been uncovered, signage indicating the store’s new name has not been added yet.
The new look pays tribute to a bit of Los Angeles history. The Majestic Theatre existed in the city in the early 20th century. According to Cinema Treasures, the theater opened in November 1908 as a home for stage shows, screening films in between productions. In 1915, it became a full-time movie house with a Wurlizer organ in the foyer, then switched back and forth from cinema to stage theater for years, before closing in April 1933. The following month, it was demolished to make way for a parking lot.
We love a premiere, so we can’t wait to see the new design all lit up at night. Keep reading WDWNT for more on what’s new at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
