The great organ was built es- peclally for the Majestic at a cost of 125,000. There will be nothing like It In this section of the country. It will reproduce virtually every Bound with which the human ear Is acquainted. So wondorful is .its delicate tones that it will reproduce the notes of a violin so, perfectly that one cannot toll the difference between the artificial muHic and the playing of a living violinist. The giant electric sign on top, which was Illuminated for the first time last Saturday night, Is the largest over any theater In Okla homa. It Is a beautiful design and has at once taken first place among the many electrics that make up Tulsa's "great white way." Extremely Handsome Interior. The Interior of the new Majestic will be nil that the most fastidious could demand. The very best seats obtainable have been purchased and there will be rest rooms for the wo men and children, and logos for private parlies.

Manager Rothsteln claims he has the strongest regular program of any movie house In Tulsa and still ha room to ptve his patrons the best of all the big ape clal features that are made. V Of these, more are being produced now than ever before and life Majestic manager says he will give his pat rons the very pick of the best. It's a wonderful record Ben Roth steln has made with the Majestic. He took It four years ago when It was run down and after several men had lost money on It, and put It on Its feet. It has ever since been fine of the most successful movie houses In the city. Tut nou so "On IW Feel" When Rothsteln came o Tulsa tne Alajestic had Just been pur chased by Dr. C. W. McCarty, I prominent professional man of the city, who had been taking a "fly In amusaments with great success I'octor McCarty was the first man to place opera chairs In a movie house in this city. He was looking for a man who could put the Ma Jestlo. across. He found him In nothsteln; lliey teamed up together and their success has been marked. Doctor McCarty, while having a largo Interest In the house, leaves me management entirely to Roth stein, although of course on all Im portant matters they advise with each other. Doctor McCarty has been a money-maker ever since he struck Tulsa and himself has a keen eye for good pictures but not quite so good as his wife. Mrs. McCartv 'rarely misses a film at the Majestic and she is said to be an excellent Judge of values and pulling power. Tulsa Is Justly proud of her new Majestic and It will be one of the teature spots along South Main, the big new retail district. The now Majestic Is owned by the Majestic Amusement company and the building la under lease for a term of twenty years. The stock holders are C. W. JJcCarty. E. R. Ferry of the Cosden company, and B.
