Majestic indeed

MSP is full of lovely theaters….the restored beauties along Hennepin Avenue or the Jean Nouvel modernist masterpiece, the Guthrie. The Ordway and Fitzgerald in Saint Paul are more than serviceable too.

But with just one theater, San Antonio has outdone everyone. The Majestic, built in 1929, was designed to look like a Spanish town (full of Moorish influences) with a resplendent dusky blue evening sky painted on the ceiling. Little design details are everywhere. The entire place is enchanting. I’ll be sure to sign up for a Majestic Theater Happy Hour tour soon!

If you have the chance, see “Come From Away” it is wonderful!
Look at that “sky”!
Another shot of the cityscape
Even the water fountain surround is cool!
