Catch a comedy show, see a musical or simply take a photograph of this grand building, the focal point of the city’s downtown historic district.

The Majestic Theatre is a premier arts venue for everything from comedy shows to major musical performances. Part of the charm of the Majestic also lies in its history and architecture. The stage has hosted famous performers such as the escape artist Harry Houdini and jazz legend Duke Ellington, while its facade has made it a Dallas icon. Before you enter the building, take a moment to appreciate the contrast of its beautiful Renaissance Revival-style design with the modern neon signage.

Opened in 1921 as a vaudeville theater, the Majestic has been used for all sorts of programs over the years. After the vaudeville era ended in the 1930s it became a cinema, holding major film premieres until 1973. It was then gifted to the city, given a major restoration and has been an arts center ever since.

The main auditorium is an impressive, Baroque-style space with ground-floor seating and two mezzanine levels. You will note that no expense was spared in its construction. The walls of this 1,700-capacity theater are covered in 23-karat gold and intricately detailed fretwork. Admire the large Corinthian columns that sit either side of the stage. Wander through the lobby, comparable to that of any great opera house, with a marble floor and two winding marble staircases.

When it comes to the performances, take the time to browse the theater's official website to find out who is performing and how much tickets cost. Given its location in the Main Street District, you’ll find a range of quality restaurants near the theater in downtown Dallas, and on Elm Street, which cater to pre- and post-show dining.

If you travel to the theater by car, there are several parking lots in the area, including one across the road. Alternatively, use the DART rail system St. Paul station is the nearest stop.
