My wife and saw Billy Cristal there. Beautiful theatre. Comfortable seat and from where we sat an unobstructed view. A little slow leaving but not too bad considering the crowd. By the was the show was excellent for us more mature citizens.

I went to the Majestic with a friend to see Jurassic Park in Concert with the San Antonio Symphony. The show was awesome. I am already a Jurassic Park fan but this experience was too good to pass up.

This is a beautifully restored building. Hard to believe that during the 1960's you could watch a movie for the admission of coke bottle caps. It's like being outside with a starry night sky. I love this place. Really no bad seats

This was the first totally air-conditioned theater in Texas - opened in 1929. This old theater is very beautiful, with an open and very high ceiling that it designed as a star studded sky. The sides have castle like balconies, lending to the interesting overall design, which has been nicely preserved. Only drawback are the small seats.

You truly will not believe the inside and how beautifully it has been restored. I cannot tell you how many performances I've attended there, and I still am in awe of the surrounding grandeur. Though some of the other venues in town compete with programs available in San Antonio, they cannot compare to the uniqueness of the theatre.

So many show options. Best of all 4 great exclusive hotels on street and the riverwalk so close you can hear it. Let's you visit San Antonio and get artcy in the same day.

The most beautiful theater! Decor is stunning. Love looking around waiting for shows to start. Bathroom line is long, but cued and moves quickly as they have so many stalls. I have had seats in many different sections except the balcony and always can see and hear well. Love it.
