I love this concert. The venue is beautiful and has this old Hollywood glam look that makes it feel so rich and beautiful. It is very well kept and has great acoustic sounds. Every seat is a good seat, if you ask me.

This place is indeed Majestic for its architecture but seating is questionable. I'm not sure if it is because this theatre is old but seating is awful. The rows are too close to each other and there are not enough restrooms. When intermission came, the line seemed like half a mile inside the theatre! Everyone was crowding and I considered... More

He is one of my favorite singers. His style, and that of his daughter, is very laid back and sentimental. He takes me back to my parents' time and reminds me of them.

Went to the Majestic Theater last night for the first time. It is, in a word, stunning. Absolutely beautiful. It is not Dodger Stadium but who wants that for an intimate evening with Smokey Robinson or Lewis Black? We were up in the mezzanine and still felt a part of the concert. Seats are comfortable, staff is helpful and friendly... More

Lovely venue for date night. Been there a few times and never had a bad night, only issue is finding parking.

When you walk into The Majestic you feel like you've been transported back to another era. Very elegant theater with some fabulous broadway series shows. Valet parking available for shows and there is a parking garage nearby ( get there early it can fill up.). Nice location downtown with a couple nice restaurants nearby.

This venue is VERY old and smells all of its years. Ornate ceiling, but other than that...I have no plans to return.

Went here to see Loretta Lynn perform and the place is beautiful. We got there about 30 minutes before the doors open, and good thing because there was a line forming to get in for people who already bought tickets. Very easy to get into and move around though. Love the guy running the elevator he was very nice, all... More
