On April 11, 1921, the new Majestic Theatre opened it’s doors during the Vaudeville era. The Majestic hosted a variety of acts from Houdini to Mae West and Bob Hope. As Vaudeville began to fade and the era of talking pictures emerged, the Majestic Theatre began hosting movie premieres and their stars such as Jimmy Stewart, Gregory Peck and John Wayne. The Big Bands featuring Cab Calloway and Duke Ellington continued the tradition of live entertainment at the Majestic. On July 16, 1973 the Majestic Theatre went “dark” after the final showing of the film, “Live and Let Die”. On January 31, 1976, the Hobilitzelle Foundation, owner of the Majestic Theatre presented the theatre to the City of Dallas. Restoration where possible; Renovation where necessary was the order at the Majestic. Restoration of the Renaissance Baroque exterior and the reapplication of the 23K gold leaf to the extensive interior decorative accents and moulding were meticulously completed. Interior improvements also involved acoustics, seating, lighting and stage renovation. The Majestic Theatre was named to the National Register of Historic Places and re-opened on January 28, 1983, as an elegant center for the performing arts.

At the top of the grand staircases overlooking the main lobby is the Terrace Room which is designed to accommodate a variety of affairs such as wedding receptions, meetings, company parties and dinners. The Terrace Room can comfortably accommodate a dinner party for 130 or reception up to 220 guests. With extensive catering capabilities, the Terrace Room can be a special location for intimate events.

Located on the edge of downtown Dallas, The Majestic Theatre is convenient to downtown hotels and entertainment areas. DART Light Rail is only steps away from The Majestic’s rear stage entrance. The 1704 seat theatre provides a variety of opportunities for presentations for musical productions, dramatic plays, national pageants, dance and concerts or a grand theatrical setting for dinner on stage.

Located on the lower level in the Majestic Theatre, The Experimental Theatre was opened in April 1999 and seats up to 100 people. It is designed for smaller scale plays, dance and theatrical productions. The Summer Musicals School of Musical Theatre uses The Experimental Theatre for classes and performances on a regular basis.

Under the careful management of DSM Management Group, Inc., an affiliate of Dallas Summer Musicals, the professional expertise of the Majestic management staff and backstage personnel combine to offer friendly and efficient management of any show or event from load-in to load-out.
