The renovation of the Empire Theatre completed the repositioning of this two venue facility in the heart of downtown San Antonio. The Empire is a proscenium theatre which is used for dance, music, lecture and small drama performances. Schuler Shook provided complete theatre planning services to bring this 900-seat facility back to life. The Empire Theatre has a custom flexible seating system on the orchestra level which allows for three different configurations: Traditional Theatre Seating, Cabaret Seating and "pops" Seating.
The Empire's adjacent atmospheric proscenium venue, The Majestic Theatre, had previously received a new stage house and rigging system, designed by Schuler Shook. The Majestic Theatre is used for popular music, orchestra and Broadway touring Companies. The two theatres are jointly operated and scheduled, affording flexibility and maximizing income.
