Going for Baroque
San Antonio's National Historic Landmark Majestic Theatre was designed by John Eberson and built in 1929. It was one of the first theaters in the U.S. to be air-conditioned, prompting the matrons of the city to come to the movies in their full length mink coats. Luxury and excess still seem to drip from the Baroque blue "cloudscape" ceiling, where the light bulbs were positioned to mimic the lights in the Texas sky on the night of the theatre's opening (with help for the National Geographic Society). Today, those lights compete with the performing artists that still light up the Majestic's 2,264-seat performing space.
