“A fantastic quaint music venue”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

This is a great place for music. You will not be far from the performers wherever you sit. But be forewarned. It is an old theater. This means a lot of stairs and bathrooms all the way in the basement. There is one elevator, but it gets busy. So just go light on the liquor at the bars (on several levels) and you will be fine.

“Great little theatre”
Reviewed 2 June 2013

I went to the Charline McCombs Empire Theatre to see Tracy Morgan the comedian. The theatre is small but beautifully done. Every seat in the theatre has a great view. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. I would definately go back to this theatre for another venue.

“Awesome Venue!”
Reviewed 1 June 2013

This is the backside of the Majestic Theater and was only for blacks back in the day. Awesome renovation of the original artwork and wall treatments. It is going to get a new name soon so look for that.

“SMALL -ELEGANT - PERFECT”
Reviewed 19 May 2013

The Charlene McCombs Empire Theatre is such a jewel tucked quietly away in San Antonio. We love to attend shows at the theatre because it is so very easy to access and move around in. We owe a dept of gratitude to Charlene for saving this wonderful place.

“Small Intimate Venue”
Reviewed 25 August 2012

Smaller than the Majestic but regal none-the-less. Great intimate venue for comedians and small bands/solos since you feel up close and personal.
