Built by local business owner Henry Scharf and located near the historic Gettysburg Hotel, the Majestic Theater opened in 1925. The theater seated 1,200 patrons and was a favorite location of President Dwight D. Eisenhower and First Lady Mamie Eisenhower when they lived in Gettysburg. The theater was restored to its 1920s beauty thanks to the efforts of preservationists who secured over $16 million for restoration efforts and completed their work in 2005.
