This is the perfect setting for plays, musicals and concerts. The first time I attended was in 1983. I saw the King and I with Yule Brynner. I had 5th row center seats. Amazing. I've been many times since. The theater was built in 1929 and the interior is spectacular, seating comfortable, the sound and lighting excellent. A must see... More

After 11 years in San Antonio, we finally had the opportunity to attend a concert at the Majestic. We enjoyed an excellent show by the French group Gipsy Kings. The music was great, but the theater was equally enjoyable. We have never seen such an elaborate architecture in a music hall. Our best guess that its style is called Spanish... More

If you get a chance, please experience a Broadway Play or any performance at our magnificent Majestic Theatre! It's something to behold. One of San Antonio's finest. This renovated movie theater of old has become the best performance establishment of it's kind. It's beauty is unsurpassed!

This is a nice theatre, the tickets are a bit pricey usually even for seats in the back. I wouldn't make it a regular visit, but it makes for a nice night out!

This is the first time I have been there and I grew up in San Antonio. This theater is breath taking right down to the bathrooms!! I was in awe all night of the detail and the broadway show we saw was amazing also. You will not be disappointed. Take the elevator, it's an old crank up one just beautiful.

If you have never been to the Majestic Theatre, YOU MUST! It is an eclectic majestical theater unlike any other place on this earth. The acoustics are amazing. I have seen the Eagles LIVE at the Majestic as well and I have never heard better clarity and sound from a place I have seen a concert. The seats are comfortable... More
