This is my first review for this place but I have been here several times...then put money into this place and it shows the acoustics in here when you see an event or a performer you just can't beat it...and the location is fabulous when you're done you walk right out to the beach how much better can it get

Needs updating. The coffee shop has good coffee but not so good muffins (very greasy). Stores need to post their hours of business.

The Paramount is from years gone by, therefore, there is a certain nostalgic feel about the theatre. It's just too bad they couldn't invest somehow and restore the interior to it's original beauty.
