Welcome to one of King’s Lynn most beautiful buildings, The Majestic Cinema. This stunning cinema was officially opened on 23rd May 1928; with the year commemorated in the stained glass windows at the front of the building.
As an independent cinema, the Majestic prides itself on being a friendly place to come for all movie goers. The main attraction to the Majestic, beside its films, is the building itself and all the history that comes with it.
Today, the Majestic has four screens but back when it was first opened the Majestic had one two tier screen (where Screen 1 and 2 are now), and a ballroom (where Screen 3 is now). Over the years the Majestic has transformed but features from its past still live on within the building. You just need to know where to look.
When you next visit the Majestic look out for certain features like the stained glass windows in the main entrance, the circle of zodiac signs in the ceiling of Screen 1, the bouncy spring-layered floor in Screen 3, and the old stage in Screen 2.
Every year the Majestic takes part in King’s Lynn’s Heritage Day where you have the chance to explore the cinema in more detail and to learn about the buildings past. The Majestic puts on tours with knowledgeable staff always willing to guide you through its history.
Currently, the Majestic has four screens. Screen 1, with its ornate dome, seats 313. Screen 2 holds 149 seats,this screen has disabled access. Screen 3 holds 113 seats and was originally the ballroom which closed 1977. Screen 4 holds 44 seats and also has disabled access. All screens have Dolby Digital 7.1 surround sound installed with up to date modern seating throughout also.
