Cutler Majestic Theater, built in 1903, was purchased by Emerson College and expertly restored to its original splendor for its reopening 2003.
Even if ArtsEmerson never staged a show, we would still be forever grateful to its parent, Emerson College, for first giving Boston the aptly named Cutler Majestic Theater, and then The Paramount Center (read the DNE story on its revival). These two buildings are art treasures in and of themselves. And, trust me, the long hike up the stairs to the Majestic’s balcony is worth every step just to be that close to the theater’s glorious ceiling.
