Majestic Theater Lobby Renovation Progressing

Now that The Majestic Theaters concession area and lobby in Hebron have been gutted, affixed with new sheetrock, mopped and painted, theres great anticipation about the imminent new look. Volunteers also continue eagerly increasing in multitude, to help expedite the renovation, which will feature a contemporary design that the lobby and concession area will soon offer with sleek, black lines.

During a late February morning in downtown Hebron, volunteers were intently scraping the tile off the floor that leads from the lobby to the cinema; preparing for the forthcoming carpeting, as well as painting the walls anew.

Movies are still being shown, as usual, and patrons are urged to be patient with the in-transition lobby and concession area.
