The Majestic goes back to its cinematic roots

21/10/13

Between 4th October and 20th December The Majestic will once again entertain moviegoers as part of the Hyperspace Exhibition. And here at Rushbond we’re delighted to support Leeds-based arts charity, Pavilion in hosting these free screenings of Melvyn Moti’s 24-minute film, The Eight Fold Dot.

The Dutch Artist’s 35mm film gives viewers the chance to contemplate the fourth dimension: a geometrical space beyond human experience. 

Richard Baker at Rushbond comments, “We are pleased to be able to support Pavilion in this project, which is particularly fitting due to the original use of the Majestic building as a cinema. It will also give members of the public the chance to see the spectacular interior of the premises following many years of being lying dormant.”

The Grade II-listed building opened in its doors as a cinema in 1922, seating 2,800 moviegoers. The Majestic then transformed into a nightclub in 1996 before sadly sitting empty for several years before our acquisition and recent refurbishment creating a truly unique space.
