At the time it was opened to the public in 1929, Majestic Theater
was the second largest motion picture theater in the nation, being second only to the Fox Theater of Georgia. Built on land leased to Karl Hoblitzelle and designed by John Eberson to be part of the chain of Interstate Theaters of the former, Majestic Theater

’s cultural history that is steeped in Spanish traditions courtesy its initial settlements. Many popular festivals and events of modern day San Antonio
are infused with Spanish themes such as the Fiesta Noche del Rio that features folklorico and flamenco music.

Majestic Theatre - San Antonio Tickets Information
Designed at the time to be the ultimate venue for a movie night out in the downtown for 2,311 people at a time, the Majestic Theater’s commissioners spared no expense in rendering it as the cornucopia of aestheticism. From the Greco-Roman styled Elizabeth Huth Coates Foyer and the Fabergé egg like inner lobby to the baroquely embellished main stage, the Majestic Theater is like an Italian fresco coming to life. A stuffed rare white peacock perched on the balcony and doves posited in midflight by suspended wires , surrounded by creeping grapevines and lush foliage lend an aspect of frozen nature to the theater’s womb.
The mid-seventies seemed to herald an end to the glorious era of the Majestic Theater. However, it was revived to its former glory by the Majestic and the Las Casas Foundations after it was listed on the National Registrar of Historical Places in 1975. Over the decades, patrons of the theater have had the regal pleasure of watching world class musicals such as the Phantom of the Opera, Lion King, Miss Saigon and Cats, whose staging was only made possible after a $ 3.5 million expansion in the mid-nineties. For more than two decades, the San Antonio Symphony has also been enjoying a royal stay at the Majestic Theater.
With an upcoming lineup that features the “who’s who” of theatrical pieces such as the musicals Mary Poppins, Les Miserables and Fiddler on the Roof as well as performances by the Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker , the Majestic Theater is playing a royal flush.
