The Paramount is a lovely theatre with reasonable prices. The lineup has improved greatly over the last few years. The seats are comfortable. There is a bathroom close by, though the lines can be long during a big show. There really isn't a bad seat in the theatre--even in the balcony. A great theatre in Rutland!

Good selection of performances, tickets are reasonably priced (especially compared to Broadway). Downside is slightly small number of restroom facilities for women. The line gets a bit long, so don't delay at intermission.

We went to our second show at the Paramount. The restored theatre is beautiful and I don't think there are any bad seats. We saw "Bill Engvall" and his show was fantastic. We will sure visit the Paramount again.

Sound was good. Seats were small, so not the most comfortable. Venue was architecturally beautiful. Good seats in the whole house. Would go there again.

We traveled up from Brattleboro to catch Ziggy Marley. It was my first time at the Paramount and I really enjoyed it. We parked across the street in the big plaza parking lot. It's a great place to walk around downtown. The theater itself was beautiful and while we had seats up high in the balcony, the view of the... More

This old theater features quite a variety of productions...from celebrities to local theater groups. The building has an older era charm (although the seating is not so comfortable if you are there for a long time without a break!). Lobby can get QUITE congested if it's raining outside and they have not yet opened the theater doors, and the restrooms... More

We had such a great time seeing the government mule show. This old theater is small and beautiful. The staff was super friendly and laid back. I've never been to a hall that would let you leave and then come back in. The only drawback was the terrible beer choices. it was Blue Moon or Coors lite. And they do... More

I went to see New Order play and everything was going great until the music started. Ear splitting noise. It's possible the sound engineers screwed up but I would not see another concert here. This is the perfect venue for plays though. Maybe musicals where the emphasis is on voice.

I love that this Rutland landmark was revived. Having the theater really breathes life back into downtown. I try to see as many shows as I can.

The Paramount Theater in Rutland is hardly what you would expect in a small Vermont city. A theater restored to its former glory, the Paramount features artists, orchestras, Broadway shows, symphony orchestras, comedians, and the like for the benefit and entertainment of southern Vermont. But, in addition to this cultural oasis, it also manages to broadcast wide screen sporting and... More
