This is a beautiful Theater with lots of character. The decorum on the inside reminds you of being in the twenties. This place also has a women's powder room adjoining the restroom which is very charming. The acoustics are good and they generally have good entertainment. This is a great place to get local culture as well as that from... More

Old remodeled theater with hand painted ceilings and walls. Can see the stage good from any location in the theater. Seats are old, narrow, with little leg room but surprisingly comfortable. Nice, large stage. Acoustics were excellent.

We are so lucky to have this treasure here in Ashland, Ky. We have been able to see so many artists and productions of broadway quality. The people who work at the Paramount are devoted to bringing the highest quality of productions to the Paramount.

Attended the IMEA Awards in October 2014, at the historic Paramount Theater. Seats were somewhat comfortable (but after 4 straight hours well, not so much). The leg room is not exactly ample, as you would expect in old theaters, gets cramped quickly and the space between seats is minimal at best so you'll be touching elbows with the people beside...

We were in Ashland for the weekend and drove by the Paramount Arts Center and saw the musical "Cats" was playing. We had never been to the Paramount so decided at the last minute to see if there were any tickets available. We were in luck and purchased seats in the upper section. The show was fantastic!!! Have to recommend... More

A restored movie theatre which is enjoyable to explore but the shows are consistent to big cities. You have a variety of music, all genres, broadway type shows as well as comedy acts. A place where there is something for everyone.

The Paramount Arts Center is a historical building that provides very high quality entertainment throughout the year in a small town venue. It is amazing the types of shows that have played at the Paramount Arts Center. You need to check out their website for the listing of current acts scheduled. You won't be disappointed.

The Paramount is one of only a handful of surviving theaters built by the company in the 1920s art deco style. The shows here are always top notch and every seat in the house offers an excellent view and acoustics. (I prefer to sit in the first few rows of the center balcony area). Get there early so you can... More

The Paramount has been restored to its original beauty and is the venue for an excellent variety of performances. If you are planning a trip to the Ashland KY area, try to catch a show, or at least stop in for a visit. It is a gem in our small town! No bad seats in the house, although we prefer... More
