The Majestic Ventura Theater Reviews
Apr 12, 2007
Yesterday was the first time I went to a concert at the Majestic Ventura Theater, not only was the concert amazing, but so was the venue. It is a small place; so, wherever you are situated you will be close to the band. The Majestic was started as a movie theater in the 1920s and built in the Mission Style; the seats have all been taken out. The old chandeliers as well as the ceiling are quite a sight. This place certainly creates a special ambience compared to other venues. The main part of the theater is divided into 3 sections. We stayed in the upper one because we could see the band really well from there and we were not far from the bar either. =) It was great because I did not have a tall person or someone’s head in front of me. There is also a balcony, which is the only seated part of the theater. So, if you like having a bird’s eye view of the concert this is the place to be. And what a view it is, you can see perfectly well onto the stage and you're able to appreciate the decorations inside the theater even more.
The security guys are dead fast, they will appear out of nowhere when someone tries to climb on stage. During a recent Morrissey concert they even took the singer off stage, since there were more fans on stage, that were trying to hug him, than band members.
Depending on what band, you want to see; the price varies of course, just like any other venue. That is why I put average for the cost.
If you are in the Ventura or Santa Barbara area I would suggest you’d check out the Ventura Theater since it saves you from driving to LA. The venue is well worth checking out.
