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,

The Paramount Theatre Broadway Series plays are just like theaters in Chicago or New York. They offer a variety of plays. I like the old-time musicals better than the new more modern ones. The seats are very tight and somewhat uncomfortable, but it is a really old theater. Price is $27 per show with 4 show subscriptions. Great value!!

This local theater is simply the best in Chicagoland especially the Broadway series that they put on every year. These shows are certainly as good as Broadway or London's West End with great talent and very good production values at a fraction of the cost. Don't miss out on this gem.

Attended a concert here for the first time. Was a very nice theater and all staff was extremely helpful and polite. Free parking was within close walking distance, as was a restaurant.
