Beautiful place, reasonable prices for tickets but I don't know about drink prices as we ate & drank before going to the performance. Sorry that I can't comment on that part

Old theater with a beautiful renovation job in downtown Aurora. Good sight lines and sound quality. A pleasant place to see a broadway style production.

While the play we saw there was merely good, the theatre is lovely. Well maintained and a true jewel in Aurora. Drink options prior to the shows are very reasonably priced and the people that work there are pleasant and friendly.

I've recently attended the "Cats" production at Paramount Theatre. It was very interesting. I'm used to seeing plays rather than musicals however, I really enjoyed the music of this production. The staff there is always so friendly. From the valet parking to the people at the concession to the individuals that are helping us locate our seats. I always feel... More

This was a wonderful production. I took my Granddaughter to see her first live musical production. We had seats on the ground floor just about in the middle. When they sang individually their voices were clear and beautiful. When they sang as a group we heard every other word. It was not the performers, their harmony was perfect. The sound... More

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.
