This is the best place for a concert, small venue.

I would not sit in front row on main floor, everyone got up to the stage and those sitting in front can't see a thing

We visited this theater to see the Broadway production, Annie. The theater is beautiful and the perfect place to be entertained while at the same time enjoying the beautiful architecture.

The Majestic's beautifully restored and maintained features make this the perfect place to enjoy the Broadway shows that tour or a concert. I highly recommend everyone attend at least one event here if only to enjoy its beauty.

The Majestic is a landmark in San Antonio which brings in awesome shows. It's very small, which is a good and not so good thing - the rows and seats are pretty close together, but there's not really a bad seat in the house. It may be a little difficult to get around in for some people, even though there... More

The decor was spectacular. Seating was comfortable and easy to find location of seats. There is a bar, though I did not use it. Drinks are allowed to be brought to your seat. All the ushers were friendly and helpful.

Saw Penn & Teller performance. The theatre and lobby are beautiful. First row Mezzanine has plenty of legroom compared to other seats. The view is pretty good but the railing is a little high. There is a fair amount of traffic by ushers and guests.

It is worth going to this theatre no matter what is playing. It is a beautiful theatre, and wonderfully restored and maintained. We went to the musical "Once" - the acoustics were very good as well. We liked being able to purchase a drink at intermission and take it back to our seats with us. My one complaint is that... More

This historic theater is a real treasure. You have to see it to believe it...architecture, detail, atmosphere. Everyone should see at least one production here. Nice.

This is one of those old theatres. Do you remember when you actually had leg room. This theatre does not pack you in like a sardine. The place is ornate and beautiful. There is not a bad seat in the house. Just a great place to see a show. My only recommendation is for the theatre to remodel the restrooms.

Always love seeing shows at the majestic. During Fiesta we saw the Fiesta Pops featuring Little Joe and Mariachi Campanas de America. It was such a fun time with all the music and dancing and truly showed the wonderful culture of San Antonio. Plus the theater is right in the heart of downtown close to the river walk.
