After checking in at our hotel we went for an evening stroll to to check out the area. As we walked past the Majestic Theatre we noticed many people going in. The box office is right beside the theater. Huey Lewis and the News was playing in 20 minutes. We got tickets and went in. The place is magnificent. So... More

Of course you go for a show otherwise you cannot get in. But the interior of this magnificent bld is an amazing array of Rococo, Grecian and whatever architecture with a very "blue sky", white peacocks, carvings galore. It is a marvel and worth the trip just to see the building. ONE man is responsible for the upkeep of all... More

The Majestic Theater is one of the best hidden jewels of San Antonio. Multiple local, national and international functions are offered throughout the year. Given it's size every seat is a great seat! This theater is a "must-see" place when visiting San Antonio!

We went to take a peek inside the theatre and a San Antonio Police officer stopped us. We thought we were in trouble but he took us in and gave us a very informative tour of this beautiful old theatre. Very beautiful and historic.

Great seating, sound and big screens. The service is good, the place is clean and the bathrooms show the pride of the manager.

It was my first time at the Majestic Theatre and I cannot wait to return. We saw Wicked there and I really don't think there is a bad seat in the house. No matter where your seat is, you must go up to top and look out over the theatre. Amazing panorama view. A must visit on your trip to... More

The acoustics are amazing no matter where you sit. The ushers are all volunteers and are amazingly friendly and helpful. The ornate interior makes you feel like you should where a ball gown! Loved it!

I love this theatre. Not only can you take in some great shows, the theatre itself is a show. The acoustics are good, seating is comfortable, most views are good, and the theatre is beautiful. An evening at the Majestic is a real treat.

Unfortunately, there are no tours of the theater which is now for live performances. Very good shows almost all the time. It is a beautiful theater and worth seeing a show just to see the interior
