Did you know that San Antonio is home to a thriving theater scene?
The next time you would like to take in a live performance, head to one of the following theaters:
It was in 1946 when the Woodlawn Theatre opened as a venue of esteem and prestige. Fourteen years later, John Wayne used the theatre to host the premiere of his movie The Alamo, and for years after, it continued as an elegant venue for Hollywood films. The building eventually fell into disrepair, and after a major renovation, it reopened in 2006 as a live performance community theater that mainly features Broadway-style shows. Thousands of visitors walk through the doors each year, and Woodlawn became known as one of San Antonio's historical landmarks in 2013.
Found in the center of downtown, the Aztec Theatre is one of the city's most cherished historical landmarks. When it opened in 1926, it was one of the most decorative movie theatres in the United States, and many consider it a Meso-American work of art. It cost two million dollars to build and is complete with an interesting mix of authentic columns, reliefs, and artifacts. Today, the theatre hosts a variety of live performances every year, and premium seating options are available.
Designed in the Spanish Mediterranean style, the Majestic Theatre opened in 1929. Now designated a National Historic Landmark, it once stood as the second largest motion picture theatre in the country. Today, it remains as one of the finest atmospheric theatres ever constructed as features include a domed ceiling painted with stars and clouds. Majestic is now home to the Broadway in San Antonio series, and it also offers a wide array of concerts.
