The Majestic is truly a wonderful venue. It is lovingly designed and really takes you back to the pomp and splendor of 50s Hollywood. The architecture alone is almost worth a ticket to a show. The acoustics are fantastic. I have sat in almost every section of the theatre and have never had a bad experience (though if you are... More

I've often visited this venue for different artist performances and have always enjoyed it's "aesthetic" ambiance. That being said...my husband and I are tall and the seating is very "tight" (no leg room).

It is worth attending the many shows they have in this theatre. The interior is majestic & definitely lives up to its name. A parking garage close is also a big benefit for attending events there.

Loved the wood carvings and interior ambiance. It was like stepping back in time. We went to see the Illusionists. The ushers are helpful and courteous. There are snack areas. Be advised that there can be a lengthy wait for the ladies room during intermission.

It's always a joy to come to a performance in this beautiful theater. Old world charm at it's best. Hoping to be able to afford to sit in the box seats one day. Parking tip- don't use the Houston St. parking deck, it's a bear to get out when the performance is over. Go over a street and use the... More

The Majestic is San Antonio's host for the Broadway Across America tours and I've been many, many times over the years. Great staff, beautiful venue - look up to the ceilings!

After reading about this Theatre, I looked for events that might be there during our Christmas visit. The Moscow ballet was performing The Nutcracker and while I have seen that particular ballet frequently, I wanted to see the interior of the theatre. And it was incredible. I have never seen anything quite so amazing. San Antonians have every relight to... More

I've been going to the Majestic since I was about 13, and I've loved seeing so many shows come through our city. The Majestic itself is beautiful and historic - yes, it's a little old, but the roof of the theatre and all the detail in the decor is just breath-taking. Great acoustics, too! I've sat in orchestra, mezzanine, and... More

The Majestic is still a beautiful theater. I remember it's beauty when I was a teenager. I saw the Jersey Boys recently @ the Majestic & was still awed by it's "majestic" appearance.
