This a beautifully restored old theater with floating clouds and lighted stars in the ceiling! The theater shows old classic movies (The Desk Set, Gone With the Wind, Ben Hur, Sound of Music, etc.) They also stage live plays, ballets, and concerts. I would recommend any production of this kind!

We had a real nice time going to the movies. It was clean and very nice. Would go again. My daughter and myself were the only 2 that went but we did have a good time. It was a little cold in the actual theatre but over all was a good experience.

One of the gems of Abilene. A visit to the Paramount is like a trip back in time to when a trip to a movie theater was an experience in and of itself. I love the twinkling stars overhead and the clouds that drift across the ceilings.

The Paramount Theater is a great place to view a movie from the past. Its atmosphere provides the feeling of being under the stars in a classic court yard settings. The monthly feature movie represents the best of Hollywood! The discussion before the movie is shown provides historical and background information about the feature...what a great way to visit the... More
