This is an absolutely Beautiful Theatre! We went here to see Foreigner after we found out it was haunted with Bad Wolf Ghost Tours. Fantastic show and Fantastic theatre!

A trip to the Majestic is magical! The inside is so beautiful! The chairs are comfortable, you get a great view. I have had front row seats and will never forget the experience. I have also sat in the balcony and enjoyed it as well. The view and sounds are good thru out the facility.

I would go just to see the theatre!!! It is gorgeous. The ceiling is like you are in a planetarium and the first show I saw there was BB King. We had great seats but I kept looking at the ceiling. Many shows later I can say I still love the theatre for its history, acoustics and the friendliness of... More

If you get a chance to catch any kind of performance in the Majestic Theatre, please do. You will not be disappointed. Majestic is a great description as well as name mainly because of the faux Spanish motif, star studded ceiling, and small intimate venue setting.

Go back in time to the bygone days of luxurious theatre! The Majestic offers a wide array of Broadway shows and concerts to please any taste! The bonus is getting to enjoy them in the "majestic" surroundings of this fabulous venue!

Great staff and great theatre, just wish it was bigger so there could be better acoustics. Handicap accessible, staff is very attentive and will help with just about anything.

The theater is fascinating to see - and that is before the performance even starts. This is a San Antonio treasure. The production we saw was great with really good set designs. We saw a Broadway Across America production and were not disappointed.

I saw Queensryche at the Majestic. Knew nothing about the place, so I was struck by all the Mayan/Aztec-looking frescoes and statues and the opulence of all the decor. It really looks like an old opera house but with a twist! Very cool inside. Acoustics were great for the concert, we felt like we were much closer to the stage... More

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.
