Majestic Theatre / Empire Theatre

The Majestic Theatre is San Antonio's oldest and largest atmospheric theatre. The theatre seats 2,264 people and was designed by architect John Eberson, for Karl Hoblitzelle's Interstate Theatres in 1929.

In 1975, the theatre was listed on the National Register of Historical Places and was designated a Texas Historic Landmark in 1991 and a National Historic Landmark April 19, 1993. The theatre was home to the San Antonio Symphony from 1989 to 2014. For many years, it remained the largest theatre in Texas and the second-largest movie theatre in the United States. It was also the first theatre in the state to be totally air-conditioned.
