A street view of the Majestic Theatre at 69080 Main Street is shown in slide that Al Johnson Sr. shot in 1948. It shows a small older building with a very modest marquee and exterior. The overall style is similar to the jobs that Johnson Construction Company completed in the late 1930s and early 1940s. The slide was labeled by my grandfather as "Majestic Richmond" and is dated May 1948.

Commentators on the "Memories of Growing Up in Richmond!!" Facebook page say that after the Majestic Theatre closed, the building housed Richmond Automotive, and then a business called Laser Mark-It. That business is still open in the original theater building in March 2021.

Three of my grandfather's theater slides show two separate theater jobs in Richmond, Michigan. Richmond is on M-19 about 13 miles east of Romeo. Unfortunately there's very little online information to be found on either theater. A street view of the Majestic Theatre is shown in slide that Al Johnson Sr. shot in 1948. It shows a small older building with a very modest marquee and exterior. The overall style is similar to the jobs that Johnson Construction Company completed in the late 1930s and early 1940s. The slide was labeled by my grandfather as "Majestic Richmond" and is dated May 1948. Neither the WaterWinterWonderland.com nor the Cinema Treasures websites have any information on this theater. The CinemaTour website simply lists the "Majestic Theatre" in "Richmond, MI" and the fact that it's closed. I could find no address or other online information for the theater.
