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.

This has to be one of the most beautiful and unique theaters ever built, and I was thrilled that it had been restored and now books such shows as the national touring company of "Once." I went to a matinee performance and was seated in row H, in the left orchestra section. I was able to see the spectacular wall... More

Attended a show of the musical Rain, and we were delighted with the entire performance! The musicians were excellent and fun to watch. All the audience participated, and swayed to this wonderful music! Great fun for all!!!

I have been to San Antonio thousands of times and have never seen a concert here. My first one was the 2 CELLOS and I was beyond happy. This theater is gorgeous, historical and great for intimate concerts. I was pleased and look forward to more concerts.
