Majestic Theatre, Brooklyn, NY
651 Fulton Street
Architect: John B. McElfatrick,
Also known as BAM Majestic, BAM Harvey
Opened August 29, 1904, with Montgomery & Stone in The Wizard of Oz.
In the early years of the 20th Century, Brooklyn had a large number of legitimate theatres, and today the only one remaining is the Majestic. Throughout the 1920s and 1930s, it housed both pre- and post-Broadway productions. In 1942, the Majestic became a movie theatre and showed films up until it closed in 1968. The Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) rescued the theatre in 1987 for Peter Brooks' production of The Mahabharata renaming it the BAM Majestic. Instead of doing a complete restoration, the theatre was turned into a purposeful ruin. The theatre is now the BAM Harvey named after Harvey Lichtenstein who made BAM into the world-class cultural center it is today.
