Traveled to Aurora to see a performance of "CATS". Performance was stupendous. This was my first trip to this beautiful theater!

I grew up watching movies in this theatre and I am never disappointed going back, besides bringing back fond memories of the good ole days it is still as active and beautiful as ever. Just went to see CATS and it was incredible, so happy this theatre was restored and still going strong. Lots of places to eat around the... More

We visited the Paramount for a production of CATS while visiting Chicago. All I can say is Wow! What an awesome production! While CATS is a bit of a strange, and polarizing show (you love it or you hate it - or you think ALW was taking hallucinogens when he wrote it), the cast at the Paramount was simply awesome... More

I have been to several shows here at the Paramount and no matter where I was (main floor or balcony) the seats were great. The acoustics for concerts are right on. The staff is great, the bathrooms are clean. Not a bad thing to say about this theatre.

Seems like there wouldn't be a bad seat in the house. Small renovated theater is nice and comfortable.

The Paramount began producing it's own Broadway shows a few years ago, and they have become known among Broadway actors as the place to audition outside of Broadway. The shows are excellent, the theatre is very accessible and ticket prices are reasonable. Very excited about the 2014-15 season - CATS, Mary Poppins, Tommy and Les Miserables.

Never been disappointed in any of the shows I've seen. Well organized, great performances, good prices. This is one of Aurora's shining lights and even if you have to travel a ways to get here, it is worth the trip. Well set up so few, if any, bad seats in the house, plus a great sound system. Very, very nice!

We went to two Broadway productions this past year and they were both very good. So good, in fact, that we bought the full next season. If you like Broadway productions without the hassle of going into Chicago and parking, etc. check out the Paramount. The shows are tops! We love going into Chicago for the theatre but have thoroughly... More

Paramount offers a great selection of shows for everyone. The offer everything from broadway shows to major music concerts. The prices are affordable and parking is easy and mostly free around the area. They do offer valet parking as well. Make sure to catch a show there, you won't regret it,
