The theater is nice and very pretty, but not very comfortable, especially for anyone near 6 feet tall or taller. We left our concert at intermission because it was too uncomfortable.

We enjoyed the Majestic for the Totem Pole's production of The Christmas Carol." The acoustics were great and seats very comfortable. Parking garage is close by, making it a breeze to get into the theater quickly.

We attend both live performances and films regularly at the Majestic and really appreciate its charm. If the theater's "founding artistic director" would just stay off stage and allow the performances to speak for themselves, the place would be perfect.

We live in town and frequently visit the Majestic. They bring top notch performances and movies to the area. It's a surprising find in a small, rural town.

Enjoyed Metropolitan Opera's season finale live streamed in HD. It was a deal at $23/head. Beautifully restored venue well adapted for wheelchair access.

Attended the Christmas Carol in Dec 2016. It was great fun. WARNING - the seats in the balcony are incredibly small. Thankfully a lady next to us moved so we could spread out a little.

Yes, you may dress casually. For what may be playing its best to check their website for shows and show times. If you are not in walking distance there is a parking garage right behind them you can park in rather than off... More
