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.

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 Paramount is one of the must see attractions in Abilene. It is a grand theater from the early 1900's. They still show classic films. I actually took a class here while I was in college. They also have themed events such as scary movies during Halloween and Christmas movies in December. The architecture and design of the theater is... More
