The Majestic Theatre
Recognized as one of the most ornate facilities in the country, the Majestic has long held a special place in the archives of Texas theatrical and architectural history. Located at 224 E. Houston Street in the heart of downtown San Antonio, the Majestic was designed and built in 1929 by John Eberson for Karl Hoblitzelle’s Interstate Theatres, and stood proudly for many years as the largest theatre in Texas and the second largest motion picture theatre in the country. It was intended to be the most modern and ornate building in South Texas – complete with new sound and projection equipment – and was the first theatre in the state to be totally air-conditioned.
Today, the Majestic Theatre is San Antonio’s premier performing arts facility featuring Broadway shows, concerts, comedians, and other live events!

GalaPro is a revolutionary, innovative app for accessibility and translation, which enhances the audience’s experience for live performances. Patrons using the app can now enjoy the show with subtitles, dubbing, audio description, closed captioning, and amplification in their own language. All services are provided in real-time, using voice recognition technology.
GalaPro is the first-of-its-kind mobile application that enables the attendees to not only see and hear the performance, but to understand what is being said as well. GalaPro is compatible with any smartphone or tablet and can cater to any theater, venue and language in the world.
GalaPro requires a one-time installation of the app. It is easily accessible and can be downloaded for free from the App Store/Google Play. Then, the user simply chooses the venue, the show they wish to see, and service(s). Using our multilingual system, GalaPro provides users with the complete itinerary and program. They can choose from subtitles, closed captioning, dubbing, all provided in real time, as well as the Audio Describe Program for the visually impaired. Our unique technology is designed specifically to adhere to the theater. Airplane mode is always on so there will be no messages or phone calls, and a black screen with red font that only the individual looking at the screen can read. There are no bright lights to disturb anyone.
