RICO If you want this building added to your RICO buildings, add it in the settings menu, under growables. I recommend using the realistic population mod, this will calculate the amount of occupants in the building. About the building The Majestic Theatre is a performing arts theater in the City Center District of Downtown Dallas. It is the last remnant of Theater Row, the city's historic entertainment center on Elm Street, and is a contributing property in the Harwood Historic District. The structure is a Dallas Landmark and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Designed by John Eberson under direction of Karl Hoblitzelle, the Majestic Theatre was constructed in 1920 as the flagship theater for Interstate Amusement Company, a chain of vaudeville houses. The $2 million Renaissance Revival structure opened on April 11, 1921 with a seating capacity of 2,800. It replaced a previous theater of the same name (located at Commerce Street and St. Paul Street) which burned down December 12, 1917. Operations of the Majestic were moved to the Dallas Opera House which was renamed the Majestic Theater until the new Majestic was completed. The Majestic was the grandest of all the theaters along Dallas's Theatre Row which stretched for several blocks along Elm Street. The Melba, Tower, Palace, Rialto, Capitol, Telenews (newsreels and short-subjects exclusively), Fox (live burlesque), and Strand theatres were all demolished by the late 1970s; only the Majestic remains today. The Majestic hosted a variety of acts from Houdini to Mae West and Bob Hope during the vaudeville era. Beginning in 1922, films were added to the regular vaudeville offerings. The theatre began hosting movie premieres and associated stars such as Jimmy Stewart, Gregory Peck, and John Wayne. The Big Bands featuring Cab Calloway and Duke Ellington continued the tradition of live entertainment at the Majestic. In 1932, the Majestic began showing movies exclusively. It was known as the "man's house" featuring films of Humphrey Bogart, James Cagney and other macho heroes while the nearby Palace was known as the "laidies' house" featuring films with female leads. On July 16, 1973, the Majestic Theatre closed after the final showing of the film “Live and Let Die”. The Hobilitzelle Foundation turned the Majestic Theater over to the City of Dallas in January 1976 and the theatre was restored for use as a performing arts center. After restoring the exterior, the original Corinthian columns, balustrades, urns, and trellises of the auditorium were repaired and repainted. 23K gold leaf was reapplied to the extensive interior decorative accents. New seats were installed, and the number of seats was reduced from 2,400 to 1,570, to allow for an enlarged orchestra pit, the conversion of the second balcony to house advanced sound and lighting systems, and the division of the first balcony into box seating. The stage was given a resilient floor suitable for dance performances and Backstage space was expanded. In 1977, the Majestic Theatre became the first Dallas building to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It received a Texas Historical Commission marker in 1983. The theater was reopened on January 28, 1983. Today, the Majestic is regularly used for musical productions, dramatic plays, national pageants, dance, and concerts. Changes -

Worth International Airport Mass Transit: DART (Dallas Area Rapid Transit) Light Rail and Bus service History: Throughout the 16th to the mid-18th century, Caddo Native Americans inhabited the Dallas area. In 1841, John Neely Byran built a log cabin near the Trinity River and surveyed the area. After the survey, in 1844, J.P. Dumas laid out .5 square miles of blocks and streets near present day downtown Dallas. Dallas was incorporated in 1856. Right before the Civil War, Dallas county voted in favor of secession. The war did little damage to Dallas; however, the Reconstruction Period brought myriad hardships and challenges to Dallas. Slaves were emancipated in June of 1865. In 1871, Dallas officially became a city.The major north-south (Houston and Texas Central Railroad) and east-west (Texas and Pacific Railway) railroads crossed in Dallas in 1873. These railroads quickly made Dallas a center for grain and cotton in the South. In 1880,the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad was built in Dallas and caused the city to become the cotton capital of the world. In 1904, the Trinity River flooded and reached a depth of 52.6 ft. with a width of 1.5 miles. Although only five people died, over 4,000 were left homeless, and there was an estimated $2.5 million in property damages. This devastating flood caused the city to think of ways to try to tame the Trinity. In 1911, largely due to Dallas being the cotton capital of the world, the Federal Reserve Bank opened its eleventh regional branch in Dallas. During World War I, aviation became a concern for Dallas, and so Love Field was purchased in 1927 and became Dallas' municipal airport. During the Great Depression years, Dallas fared relatively well. In 1930, oil was struck 100 miles east of the city in Kilgore, causing an oil boom. This new discovery of oil caused Dallas to quickly become the financial center for the oil industry in both Texas and Oklahoma.In 1936, the state of Texas chose Dallas to host the 1936 Texas Centennial Exposition. The Exposition lead to the creation of Fair Park, an art-deco filled complex that serves today as the fairgrounds for the Texas State Fair, the largest in the country. Fair Park additionally houses numerous museums today. In 1958, a version of the integrated circuit was created in Texas Instruments. this creation lead to Dallas promoting high-tech development and the creation of the term "Silicone Prairie" due to the large amount of high-tech manufacturing companies based in the Dallas area. On November 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated on Elm Street in Dealey Plaza. Lee Harvey Oswald shot Kennedy from the nearby Texas School Book Depository. Today, that building has been converted into a historical museum dealing with both JFK's life and assassination. Although the assassination dubbed Dallas as a "Hate City", the 1970s and the 1980s turned Dallas into a real estate hot bed. Dozens of skyscrapers were built. In 1983, DART (Dallas Area Rapid Transit) was created and began light rail and bus operations. After the 1980s, Dallas experienced a lag in growth largely due to the Savings and Loan Crisis. However, in the late 1990s, the telecom industry boomed in Dallas. This, along with another boom in the high tech industry, created a building boom for Dallas today. Currently, the recession and hard economic times have not been heavily felt in Dallas. Unlike most other major US cities today, Dallas is still a real estate hot bed and is experiencing a construction boom in downtown and the surrounding areas. In the next update, I'll show how far I am in recreating Dallas in Simcity 4.
