See the enclosed order form for a complete price listing and performances. Located in the heart of downtown San Antonio, the Majestic Theatre is the performance home of the San Antonio Symphony. Completed in 1929, the Majestic is one of the few remaining examples of the atmospheric movie palace.

Designed by architect John Eberson, who founded the atmospheric school, the Majestic features a dazzling interior that simulates a Mediterranean amphitheater in a Moorish-Baroque style. The elaborate ornamentation is vividly evident in the auditorium, with its breathtaking collection of niches, alcoves, grottos, and sculptures, all colorfully illuminated. The orchestra section and the two-level mezzanine contain 2,400 seats, surrounded by vines, trees, birds, and lush gardens held within the ornate walls. A simulated night sky is found overhead—dark blue, speckled with twinkling stars and with wispy clouds floating in and out of view.
