Anything named the majestic has to be grand! I went to experience the outside of the building. What beautiful architectural design. It is one of those places that you would buy a ticket to anything going on inside, just to step foot in to see the grand place. And that is what I plan to do lol

The only thing not to like is parking - go early to get a good space and catch a drink at one of the many restaurants - the inside of the majestic is breathtaking and the acoustics are perfect. I will definitely be back - it was wonderful

We took in the George Lopez Comedy Show! The venue is beautiful and amazing. There are plenty of staff available to help you find your seat. No seat is a bad seat. We sat in the Mezzanine right and could see and hear the show perfectly! I look forward to taking in additional plays and shows in the near future!

Too bad tours are not offered. As a theatre nut, I would have loved to see inside even if no venue was scheduled. Back in 1966 while at Lackland, I saw "How The West Was Won" in Cinerama but can't find out the name of that theatre. Probably torn down now.

A fun place to go to a show. Historical building with a great story in great condition. Sound in the auditorium is really good but not impressively great, and all the seats around me had a good view.

We walked to the Majestic Theatre and found a lovely restored building. We wish they would do tours during the day to see inside, but looks like only open when having shows.

Great for photos, outside or inside the theater, but make sure to look at the seating chart! I wound up getting "nosebleed" section seats (second to the last row in the balcony) and could barely make out the actors in Beauty and the Beast. Still, one of the best classic historic theatres in San Antonio.
