Join us on the fourth Thursday of every month for Noosa Jazz.
The Majestic theatre is rare as one of the few pre-World War II picture theatres remaining in Queensland that have not been demolished or adapted to other uses. It is also Queensland’s longest continuously operating picture theatre and the only theatre in the world that continuously screens silent films.
The Majestic Theatre at 3 Factory Street Pomona, which was originally built as a social hall with attached shops in 1921, has been promoted as the oldest authentic silent movie theatre in the world, and the longest continuously operating movie theatre in Australia. Although the building was extensively refurbished in 2006, the timber and fibrous cement sheeted building is still a rare, and functional, example of a pre-World War II country hall that was converted into a theatre.
The land on which the Majestic Theatre stands was purchased in January 1921 by Clara McDonald, who also financed the building of the hall.
