You have to see the inside of this historical theater to grasp why it is so special. I've seen local theatrical productions, Willie Nelson, Old Crow Medicine Show and a small, traveling Cirque performance here, and they all "work" with the venue. It's warm and intimate, yet in recent years a lot of updating and modernization to the stage and... More

Wonderful to watch a show or concert. Great they have summer camp for kids. They give tickets away time to time. Very easy to find and parking is on street or behind it.

The Paramount in Ashland is a great venue. I have attended several concerts there over the past twenty years. We have also seen nationally known comedy and magic acts there; as well as professional and amateur theatrical productions. The decor is classic art deco. The staff are always courteous and helpful and there isn't a single bad seat in the... More

I've been a chairholder and season ticket member for 15 years. I must say that the PAC is an extremely bright light in this city. The diversity of the program is excellent, and they have improved the type of performers every year. The Paramount building is a historic one, the only prior Paramount Studios movie theatre in the state of... More

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!!!
