The National Theater was hands-down my favorite attraction in San Jose; I loved everything about it. The architecture and decor are beautiful, and the history of the theater is fascinating. I sat in the cafe and drank a cup of coffee while I soaked in the atmosphere (original French-style tables and chairs, painted ceilings, gorgeous tiled floors). I also went on a tour of the rest of the theater (it was incredible, and completely worth the price). My tour was in English (Spanish is also available), and my guide was extremely knowledgeable.
