What was once a booming theater in downtown Bridgeport in the roaring 20’s, now stands as a desolate, abandoned building — only filled with memories of past performances and supposed supernatural sightings.
It opened in 1922, but closed down in 1971 and has been closed since. We’re giving you an exclusive, inside look to the 3,000-seat theater.
Back in the day, this was the place for entertainment. So the stage was used for not only as a movie theater, but it was also used for plays. Before a play went to New York, it would run through “The Majestic.”
Many paranormal researches have dubbed the theater, haunted. It is believed that the the building is still standing because the ancestors of the owners, are protecting this building.
