Built in 1920, the Connellee was designed by Henry Phelps for C.U. Connellee, the founder of Eastland County. The original seating configuration was 1500 seats with a center aisle with dressing rooms below the stage. The theater was completely remodeled by Interstate Theatres to serve moving pictures in 1947, changing the seating configuration to a continental layout and adding the murals on the auditorium walls and the marquee on the front of the building. The theater was renamed the Majestic and the balcony seats were replaced at that time, followed by the downstairs seats in 1955. The theater was completely restored in 1987 under the coordination of the Eastland Fine Arts Association, and the current seating configuration seats 825.
