The true name is the Paramount Theater/Stateside Theater. These are actually two vintage theaters next to each other. They provide live entertainment. They do have a bar as well. We went and saw Postmodern Jukebox last month and last night we saw the Hotter than Hell Burlesque show. Both shows were outstanding and the venue can not be beat. Something... More

Every summer the Paramount hosts a series of classic films in its historic theater setting. I believe I've seen: WestSide Story, Rebel Without A Cause, Frankenstein, Dracula, Gone With The Wind, and Vertigo. I wanna say admission was about $5 also. Each week they have a different theme (sci-fi one week with maybe Day the Earth Stood Still, Alien, Planet... More

The State Theater is the sister theater right next door to the Paramount. While the Paramount is larger with more seats and has more visual glitz inside, the little sister State Theater is far more comfortable with terrific sound and lighting! We attended "A Charlie Brown Christmas - The Music of Vince Giraldi" on Saturday, Dec. 6 at the second... More

These smaller venues are my favorite places to go for music, theater, comedy, etc. This historic building is beautifully restored. The acoustics are wonderful and there isn't a bad seat in the house!

The Paramount is a classic theatre that presents film, dance, and musical events several times a month. It's usually very reasonable, and retains the historic feel while being fully updated to the modern era in all of the ways that you would expect.

I attended showings of films in conjunction with the Austin Film Festival and was very excited to see the excellent restoration of this historic deco theater. The interior reflects all the glory of theaters from days gone by, and is a tribute to historic preservation in Austin, Texas. Not only are the walls, ceilings, and lobby beautifully restored but the... More

We went and saw Tuna Does Vegas! The show was hands down one of the funniest productions I have seen in awhile! A two man show that has your sides hurting from the laughter! The Theater is beautiful and well maintained! This is a must stop if you are in Austin!

Heard this was restored back in the 90's and is something to see. Only was the outside and was very impressed.

The Austin Theatre Alliance, along with its corporate sponsors, have done a spectacular job of keeping this place alive and kicking! All of the staff are friendly and knowledgeable about the history of the theatre. They do a good job of booking some real top notch talent here and it's worth every penny to see artists play this venue.
