Hi Jackie. Where was the Majestic?

Orrell, turn left at the Grapes and the building was on the right. Was for years a double glazing company's headquarters and workshop.

Ooops.. if you are coming from Wigan you turn right at the Grapes.

I remember seeing Michael Caine and Stanley Baker beat the Zulus there, and John Wayne getting killed by the Mexicans at The Alamo. Closed down circa 1968/69.

What a sight that was when the Zulus coming over the hill Mick.It was early 60's wen the film was released ,if I remember rightly.If you read the book the Zulus had been stitched up and had every right to re-act.

I can remember as a teenager going up into the projection room many years ago, a close family friend Stanley Gray used to be a projectionist there.

I remember this cinema. Used to take many girls from the Grammar and Secondary in Up Holland there! Happy romantic times!
