About Majestic Theatre
The Majestic Theatre is a historic music and entertainment venue in the heart of downtown San Antonio, just a couple of blocks from the San Antonio River. It’s both the oldest and largest such venue in San Antonio, opening in 1929 and seating over 2,200 people. The theater is listed as a National Historic Landmark and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Throughout its history, the Majestic Theatre has hosted many movie world premieres and continues to host musical, comedy, and Broadway shows.
Where are the Best Places to Sit at the Majestic Theatre
Orchestra seats on the lower level of the Majestic Theatre are the best seats available. Obviously, the closer to the stage, the better, as some seats toward the back of the Orchestra section will have a less clear view of the performance. Seats in the Mezzanine and Balcony can also offer a great view of the show, especially if they are in the center section and in the first few rows. The Majestic Theatre is a relatively small venue, so even seats in the upper level won’t feel too far from the stage.
