I have attended two concerts here: Yanni in March 2016 and Willie Nelson in November 2016. The building cannot be beat for architecture in the grand tradition. Both performers offered concerts in venues closer to our home (we live in Fort Worth), but the Majestic is my favorite venue for ease of access, seating, and style.

The Majestic is a beautiful old theatre that is truly historic. The ceilings are painted to make you truly believe you're outdoors under the stars. TONS of great shows are at the theatre constantly and it's a great date night!

We went to see Cabaret while in San Antonio and I have to say the show itself was amazing! I would go again for sure - it was our first time seeing Cabaret. The Majestic - WOW! I love these types of smaller theatres! They are so intimate and every seat in the house is perfect! The old world feel... More

This is a beautiful venue, but setting is really tight. So uncomfortable we left early. Have been there for other shows and setting is issue.

I love the Majestic! It has old world charm! It is well maintained and every seat is a good seat. The only drawback is finding entertainment that I want to see. The acoustics are phenomenal! The architecture is second to none and a hidden gem in San Antonio. If in the area, do stop by. You won't be disappointed!

This old movie theater had just gorgeous balconies and ceilings that was most common in the 30's and 40's. This is now a theater that has been restored to it's old glory and now shows New York plays and musicals. Gorgeous environment

The Majestic is an old-world beauty! Sound quality and acoustics are fantastic. Just walking into the theater is an adventure. Laid back venue combined with world class beauty make for special nights out on the town! Highly recommend attending an event at the Majestic!

I've been there a few times--it's hard to find good entertainment there. Not sure what they are trying to achieve with the shows that they book.
