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

I enjoyed sitting in the restored theatre watching a classic film. Excellent experience! The prices were excellent and the atmosphere inviting.

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

Love the illusion of clouds floating by on the ceiling when the lights go out. This historic theatre shows golden oldie films once a month. You can't beat the atmosphere and the resident film historian gives a lecture 30 minutes before the flick to tell the history of the stars and the making of the film. A fun, inexpensive night...
