The Majestic Theatre introduced air-conditioning to San Antonio—the hall was billed as “an acre of cool, comfortable seats”—and society women wore fur coats to its opening, held on a warm June night in 1929. The slightly smaller Charlene McComb Empire Theatre, just around the corner, is not far behind in swankiness. Nowadays, they are managed by the same company and host a variety of performances, including the occasional San Antonio Symphony concerts, traveling Broadway shows, and a variety of musical and theater productions.
