Went to watch the stage musical of Irving Berlin's White Christmas At HM Theatre. This is not my first visit neither will it be my last. It is a lovely building with beautiful architecture if you take the time to examine and admire the detail around the balcony seats and dress/upper dress circles. All performances I have seen here have... More

come here all the time to watch performances and it's always a good place to come ! The drink is reasonably priced and the seats are comfy , the only bit I don't like is in the stalls part near the front where you can't really see all of the stage due to your seats being well lowered down but...

Went to see Dirty Dancing at the weekend, no complaints about the show it was fantastic! However the wait to get in from the entrance was ridiculous, it stated doors opened 45 mins before show, meaning it would be open at 1.45pm. More and more people were arriving and there was simply no room left for people to stand. People... More

Theatre is nice but will never sit in balcony again, literally no leg room and there should also be a limit as to how much people can drink as show was ruined by the rude drunk people behind us who thought it was their right to treat it like a karaoke and talk loudly throughout whole show, stewards warned them...

Went here to see Dirty Dancing and I think this is one of the best theatres I've been too. We sat in the stalls where the seats are comfy and there is plenty of leg room. We sat towards the middle aisle on row L and had a great view - could see the performers facial expressions really clearly. Easy... More

As one of the cities jewels and locally known alongside The Central Library (Education), St Marks Church (Salvation), His Majesty's Theatre (Damnation) as the three tenants of man, this impressive building with its contempary addition (1999) is a wonderful Frank Matcham design completed in 1906. Seating more than 1400 patrons it is the largest theatre north of the central belt... More

Seats in the dress circle were leaning to the left - very uncomfortable and found it hard to keep upright! However, the show was excellent!

His Majestys Theatre is a majestic and beautiful building smack bang in the centre of Aberdeen with good parking facilities very near by. Most recently, I visited to see Dirty Dancing and there are always lots of stage shows visiting the theatre. Inside it's beautiful and decorated how I'm sure it was when it first opened. I've sat in different... More

A bar that only takes cash in 2015 is nonsense. You wait for an age to get served. It's such a shame as the theatre is great the restaurant is fantastic but the bar and toilet facilities can't cope with the amount of persons requiring seen to at the same time. Pre ordering drinks is a good idea but we... More

Wonderful place to see anything. My Husband and I saw Dirty Dancing. What a beautiful Theatre in a nice part of town. Easy to get in and out before and after the show and a large parking facility nearby
