Beginning at the entrance with the old and carefully preserved exterior, you will feel like you have stepped back in time. The unique interior is truly magical and always thrills me as I take my seat. I have sat in both of the balconies as well as the floor, and there are no bad views. The stairs in the balcony... More

"Majestic" doesn't say enough....The venue is one of the most captivating buildings I've ever been to, and I've been through several European theaters.

Great venue for theatre or concerts! we have seen two plays and two concerts here and it is magnificent! The only advice I will give is get there about 30-45 min early to be able to park in the adjoining parking garage and walk to the theatre. The bar does not accommodate a large quantity so it can be tricky,... More

I've seen many shows/performances at The Majestic and have always been extremely pleased. Beautiful interior. Great seats everywhere. Would highly recommend attending any performance at The Majestic!

Ahh the old world decor of the Majestic is breathtaking. From the wood balconies overlooking the beautiful winding wood staircase that could be straight out of Gone With The Wind! Not to mention the concerts and plays. It feels like you've stepped back into the 40's with all the technology of the Millennium!

We saw Christina Perry and Colbie Caillat and it was an amazing venue. If you have a chance, don't miss a concert here.

My wife and I went to a Celtic Woman concert (which was fantastic) at the historic Majestic Theatre. It is worth going just to be inside the theater. It is stunningly beautiful and as we waited for the concert to begin I was fascinated with the decor, which is absolutely over the top with detail. I would love to get... More

Wonderful venue with very unique atmosphere ; however, the drinks were very expensive though and concession lines very long.

I have always loved this place it's a magical experience all the seating is good and you can catch a great view form the Mezzanie especially. I have seen the Phantom of the Opera several times here and every time seems like a different experience
