The box office was open and the staff gave us a great tour through out the theater and discussed the history as well as the restoration. It is a grand old theater, magnificently... More

We were given a first rate tour, complete with history, views from the stage and mezzanine, and a list of performances. The theater was restored with $$... More

A great restoration with substantial help from Perot family in honor of their mother. Beautiful art, interior design and saving a historic theatre is priceless. Too bad the city did not save the historic organ originally and now faces a million dollar estimate to restore the stored organ due to installing air conditioning in many ducts that formerly housed original...

Beautiful, ornate, old theatre with lots of history. Named for Texarkana native Ross Perot and his sister. We enjoyed the tour.

A fabulous restoration of an historic movie theater and well worth a visit. Many name stars are booked into what was once called the Paramount in OUR earlier years. We always love the many choices we have there. J&J

A fine place for fine arts. It is a quintessential experience for such a small town to have such a place for concerts , symphonies, plays and other fine art viewing. Turn of century stuff in a small package.

The beautiful neo-classical opera house has been totally refurbished and is an absolute jewel in the crown of the local arts offerings. This is a gorgeous setting for many traveling Broadway shows, international ballet companies, operas, and the local Texarkana Symphony Orchestra. A must-see if you are in the area, even if there are no shows. The tours can be... More
