Room History:

The Majestic Theaters history begins with a Gettysburg College freshman named Henry Scharf. After illness claimed his father in February of 1922 he took over his familys' business, the Hotel Gettysburg on Lincoln Square. Two years later, Henry announced plans to build an annex immediately north of the hotel, including guest rooms, a combination gymnasium-dance hall, and an auditorium. On November 14, 1925, the Majestic Theater made its debut with the premiere of Cecil B. DeMille's ten-reel film, "The Road to Yesterday" as its first screen attraction, accompanied by "Duke" Eide of Shamokin, Pennsylvania on the organ. The interior was described as elegant and comfortable, with a mulberry and gold color scheme. One of the opening-night patrons described his experience: "The evening proved a revelation to those of us who attended and upon leaving that temple of entertainment to find ourselves on Carlisle Street, we were sure we were in Gettysburg and more proud of it than ever."

In the 1950s the theater served as a venue for large-scale press conferences for President Eisenhower during his residency in Gettysburg. In the early 1980s economic realities forced the owner to convert the single-auditorium theater into a triplex cinema. Today the Majestic Theater has been converted back to its original splendor and now continues to provide entertainment to the residents and visitors of Gettysburg. The James Gettys Hotel created the Majestic Suite in the summer of 2005 when Thistlefields Tearoom closed its doors. With the closing of the tearoom, Lord Nelson's Gallery was able to expand into the former tearoom space and the upstairs gallery was converted into the Majestic Suite.
