The Majestic Theatre

You are here Home  > Theaters >  The Majestic Theatre

The Majestic Theatre, formerly the Masonic Opera House, was built in 1853 on the site of Chillicothe’s first bank, which burned down. In 1918 when a Spanish flu epidemic hit nearby Camp Sherman, the theater became a makeshift morgue and autopsy site. It is said that the soldiers’ spilled blood was pumped into the alley, still called Blood Alley today. The theater is said to be haunted by apparitions and foggy shapes, and it is said that once during a performance, a dead body apparated on the stage. The apparition of a man in a dark suit and top hat floats down an aisle, and a little girl runs through the dressing rooms. Milton Berle, Sophie Tucker and Laurel and Hardy all have performed here in the theater’s past.
