Dallas, TX 75201


  • The last of downtown Dallas' palatial movie houses.
  • Opened in 1921, The Majestic hosted a variety of acts from Houdini to Bob Hope. As Vaudeville faded they began hosting movie premieres & their stars such as Jimmy Stewart, Gregory Peck & John Wayne.
  • Convenient to downtown hotels and entertainment areas, this 1704-seat theater opened in April 1921 during the Vaudeville era and hosted a variety of acts from Houdini to Mae West and Bob Hope.
  • Houdini, Mae West, Duke Ellington and other stars have graced the stage of this theatre which is now a National Historic Landmark.
  • This a great venue for intimate musical performances, despite the substantial size of the main room. Quite a few noteworthy acts come through here, so be sure to check their calendar.
  • If you love chandeliers and gilt and ornate mirrors, this is the place! Also has an eerie past era feel!
  • bars are cash only, but there's an ATM near the entrance on the right
  • Flash on consumer grade cameras are only good for 8 feet. Shut them off !!!
  • I saw Frost/Nixon starring Stacy Keach
  • Just the tip?
  • A beautiful, classic theater and a great place to experience music and shows.
  • I was a good show. I just don't like the idea to allow people eat and drink during the shows. It's annoying and un respectful
  • Movie palace if you see a film here get floor seats.
  • The interior is in disappointing shape compared to other historic theaters elsewhere in the country.
  • Basement bathrooms and high floor bars have the shortest lines.
  • Great place. Bring money to park in the garage.
  • This place is nice and cozy.
  • One of my favorite places for stand-up
  • Bring cash
  • Cool theater, but balcony seating was high up. Some ushers weren't as friendly or accommodating as they should have been.
