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

I have seen concerts, movies and stage productions in this theater and the acoustics cannot be beat. There is not a bad seat in the house. The atmosphere is fantastic. The eclectic variety of acts this theaters draws appeals to everyone at one time or another.

I have attended several shows at this facility. Ricky Skaggs, Loretta Lynn, Charlie Daniels, Bill Cosby, etc. The best seating is the lower level and the front of the balcony. After the first 5 rows on the balcony the seating is not so good. I am 5'2" and did not enjoy the seating on the balcony level about 1/2 way... More

If you get a chance to see a show here, do it. The venue is almost worth the price of admission. My daughter works there and we see a lot of concerts there. One of the original theatres built for silent films by Paramount Pictures. Recently restored and upgraded to accomodate large touring productions but kep the original decor.

As an Ashland native, I might value this more than a jaded outsider, but it truly is an Art Deco gem. The entire community has come together to 1) preserve the architecture and heritage of the theater, and 2) build it into a world-class performing arts facility. I am consistently amazed by the quality and variety of nationally and internationally... More
