On a visit to San Antonio, my brother purchased and surprised me with tickets to see Blue Man Group at the Majestic Theater. What a treat! This theater is gorgeous inside and out, from any angle you can imagine and I would recommend it to anyone if they ever have the opportunity. Every detail is intricately designed and uniquely beautiful.... More

I've had the opportunity over the last 10 years living in San Antonio to see various types of shows being presented in this venue. Don't judge this theatre by the outside... inside this is the coolest place, kids especially should be introduced and understand this is the benchmark they should have to gauge future venues buy. I'll admit I'm very... More

I have been to the Majestic Theater to see plays and musical reviews. It is a GREAT venue. Ornate, comfortable, and in many ways nostalgic. Don't care what you see, but you must go at least once to experience the theater itself. First time I went I thought it had an open roof vice a ceiling of stars.

My sweetie and I went to two Widespread Panic shows in July at the Majestic. If you know Panic crowds, they're a great bunch of fun-lovin' folks; generally, polite/respectful of personal and public space(s), and who like to imbibe in a cocktail or two, etc, etc...come on: it's a Panic show! Anyway, I'm rabbit-trailing here, but want to say that... More

I have loved going to the Majestic Theatre, since I was a child. Now it is limited to special performances and is no longer a movie theatre. The ceiling is a panorama of imagination with twinkling lights and even a peacock. It is a lovely experience, so buy a ticket and enjoy it.

Had season tickets this past season. Too much going for us but enjoyed the theater. We enjoyed the shows. Staff could be a bit more strict on allowing people to be seated after curtain rises, though.

We succeeded to watch the broadway show "Mamamia" here ! Our daughters were not only astonished by the magnificent show, but also shocked by the beauty and charm of the Theatre herself.

I saw a concert at the Majestic and the warm feeling I got when I entered kept me feeling wonderful all night. In fact, I enjoyed the magnificent architecture and decorations so much I left the auditorium so that I would be able to join a private tour of the facility. ....and what a treat it was. The facility and... More
