We actually had four large theaters when I was a kid. Two were originally built as vaudeville houses. They were the Byers/Greenwall Opera House (1908) with 1,436 seats, and the Majestic Theater (1911) with 1,356 seats. The Byers/Greenwall Opera House later became the Palace Theater. The Worth Theater was the largest and was built in 1928. It had 2,484 seats. The Hollywood Theater opened in 1929 and had 1,700 seats. The Hollywood is partially remaining and all of the other buildings have been demolished.
For location purposes, the Palace was on the northwest corner of E. 7th and Commerce and it was demolished in 1978 to build 777 Main Street. With that demolition, we also lost the Aviation Building. The Worth Theater was located on the northeast corner of 7th and Taylor and it was demolished in 1972 to build the Fort Worth Club Tower. The Hollywood still remains inside the Historic Electric Building at 410 W. 7th Street. The Majestic Theater was on the east side Commerce, just south of the old Greyhound Bus Terminal. The nearest cross street would have been 10th. The building was one of the last to be demolished for the Convention Center in 1965.
