You go to the theater to see a show, live event, etc. and the sleek updates make for great acoustics but not for great ambiance. The Majestic Theatre has both, wonderful acoustics and architecture to explore and look at during intermission. This is perhaps my...More

We like to park in the Houston street garage. It's a flat rate and has a connecting door to the majestic for exiting after your show. You enter on the back street across from the La Mansion Hotel.
