I have lived in Abilene all my life and have fond memories about attending functions there. Love the old time feel of an age gone by. Love the film festivals they put on and the great family events. Love how the lights in the ceiling twinkle like stars and clouds roll by.

We go to the paramount as much as we can. Great old movies, concerts, plays, ballets and operas. The moorish fixtures and the old velvet seats take you back to another time in life. We try to go every month or two. And they is always something there to see that's of interest. If you want to go back in... More

This is a theatre that is so unique as it's like stepping back in time ! You would think it was 1970 and I would know ! 😉 Beautiful decor , plush velvet curtains and seating and they show old movies and hold live shows ! We recently saw the Celebration Singers here and it was AMAZING and FREE !... More

Spent many a night growing up at the Paramount. After many years of being away from Abilene, I decided to go back. They have done a wonderful job of restoring the property to its Originality. The movie was like back in its Hayday! Great for young and old, couples or solo, teens or family. A must while in Abilene!

Time your trip to Abilene so that you can see a classic movie or a live performance at The Paramount Theater in downtown Abilene. The owner, did not spare an expense in restoring this grand theater to it's original beauty, or when investing in modern sound, lighting and acoustics. It's not be missed.

Attended the City Band concert. Great acoustics and beautiful surroundings. The ceiling is particularly interesting once the stars start to twinkle

We went to see a movie & enjoyed it very much. The movie was about a topic which is of great interest to us.

After discovering this jewel in Abilene, we made a point to go to almost every movie that was show. It was our date night. Tickets are cheap and concessions are too so we didn't spend a lot and got to see some great old movies on the big screen again. We love it so much, we are keeping an eye... More
