The Majestic Theatre launched its “Movie Night at the Majestic” programming series in 2017 through sponsorships from local businesses and organizations. The Board of Directors mentioned the success is largely due to sponsors like Janney Montgomery Scott, Detillion Landscaping, Clearsite Vision, the Ross-Chillicothe Convention & Visitors Bureau, Horizon, and Herlihy Moving & Storage.
Through the “Movie Night at the Majestic” series, the programming committee wanted to reconnect with the community and share the experience of viewing films at the historic theatre. Rather than showing new releases, the committee decided to screen classic films. The community has been very supportive and receptive of the “Movie Night” series and the Majestic Theatre is proud to announce that it will continue the series in 2018.
“It’s exciting to see a new generation experiencing the Majestic Theatre,” stated Gene Betts, Secretary for the Majestic Board. “We’ve enjoyed hearing patrons reminisce about attending movies when they were younger, and now they get to bring their children to experience a movie at the Majestic.
The 2018 movie schedule is as follows:
”January 6th - “Beaches”
February 3rd - “Pretty Woman”
March 3rd - “Uncle Buck”
