    Would love to see some photographic documentation of the interior too.

    1. So would I. Saw many films there as a child and young woman. It’s sad to see it’s tragic state today.

        Hi all, I do not have permission to go inside the Majestic Theater, but it looks like there are some photos out there of the interior. This page has some nice ones:

    Amazing details! I’ve seen it from the Interstate and thought it was beautiful. Love your close ups! Any idea when it was built?

    I love the Majestic. I’ve gone down and photographed it many times and each time I see something new.

    I’ve always loved this building in East St. Louis. So sad to think it may not make it.

    Put in a request for talks to begin on acquiring and restoring it. If the actual building is safe to enter, I own Kirk Entertainment; and have the only person to have proof that he was Michael Jackson’s on-stage substitute; when the audience thought it was Michael they were seeing. He would perform a fundraiser concert there, to help restore it. If my company gets it, we will need a lot of volunteers to help clean it up. Once Joby performs the fundraiser, I also will need to hire E. St. Louis help for my company.
