Built in 1929, the ornate Majestic Theatre was the first totally air-conditioned movie theater in the Lone Star State. Over time, even promises of central air couldn't lure the crowds to the downtown theater, and the venue shut its doors after almost 50 years of entertainment. Briefly gone, but never forgotten, the venue was intensely restored (alongside its sister, the Charline McCombs Empire Theatre) to its former glory: intimate, elegant and with acoustic renovations to boot. Today, the revamped theater is equipped to bring touring mega-musicals to the Alamo City with its Broadway in San Antonio Series. Upcoming shows include Annie (April 14-19), Newsies (May 12-17) and Mama Mia (June 9-14). 224 E. Houston St., (210) 226-3333, majesticempire.com
