Suite History

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. In the 1950's the theater served as a venue for large-scale press conferences for President Eisenhower during his residency in Gettysburg. In the early 1980's 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.
