We go once a month to the classic movie. It's always enjoyable. If you can go on Fri. night go an hour early for the talk about the the movie. There's always some interesting facts about the movie and its stars that you hear. $6 for an adult ticket and $5 for a senior ticket for a classic movie equals... More

Restored, beautiful, cloud machine moves clouds across the star studded ceiling. Sound system top notch and performances are unbelievably good. Don't miss anything at the Paramount...oh, and try the popcorn too!

My husband and I lived in Abilene for several years and this was our favorite place for date night! We would always go to the monthly movie showings and loved it. Sometimes it was the only way to get my husband to watch a good chick flick with me. Get there early or late, there is always a good seat... More

Abilene is a wonderful place for small live performances. I say small because the Paramount Theater is a wonderful venue, but the stage is small and limits the type of productions that can be accommodated. But, the shows that are here are wonderful. If you are in town for more than a day or two, look this place up and... More

We looked around briefly inside; it's beautifully preserved with a balcony and downstairs area as well. I would enjoy seeing a show here sometime.

A beautiful theatre, transports you back to some of the splendours of the 1930s. Saw the film 'It's a Wonderful Life' there

So many cities have let their classic movie palaces go the way of the wrecking ball. The Parmount Theatre in Abilene, TX is an example of restoration done right. The theatre is at the center of the city's cultural scene and continues to offer stellar choices - from the classics to live productions. You won't want to miss the opportunity... More

Fabulous musicals (like 'Young Frankenstein' or 'Bonnie and Clyde') as well as neat, old movies. See what takes your fancy in Abilene's restored movie palace.

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
