    Documentary Screening

    My non-profit group rented the Majestic to do a documentary screening. The contact person was very helpful. They arrived ahead of time to make sure that the venue was ready for our event. They went above and beyond our expectations. The venue was very clean and had more than enough room for the number of people who attended the screening. We had a very positive experience and would highly recommend the venue to others.

    The Majestic Theater's reply:

    Thank you, Terri, for your review! We loved screening the film for your group and appreciate your thoughts on our venue.

    Wonderful Space

    The Majestic is always willing to help the community anyway they can. From free Christmas movies to their special opening for RAGBRAI, they do their best to use the venue to contribute to activities in the community. i have attended a wedding at the Majestic and it is a great place to have your wedding and reception. Everyone is very nice and accommodating. I would highly recommend having a wedding, reception, graduation party or any function at the Majestic.

    Thank you, Christina! We really appreciate your feedback and have enjoyed working with you on your events. As someone who coordinates a number of events yourself, we really value your opinion!
