“One of the Best I've ever seen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2012

Love this place, go inside and you will too. It has old time feel to it, watching an older movie or a play is great, I have been here to the opera before as well, beautiful place for an aria to be performed.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2012

Great movies and the inside scenery is restored to its original splendor. Twinkling stars and clouds moving across the ceiling.

“Historic Beauty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2012

The Paramount shows movies on its huge screen but they also have many live performances. This is the most beautiful theater I've ever been in.

“restored down town movie theatre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2012

Remember how beautiful old movie theaters were? There's even twinkling stars on the ceiling up above the carved balconies. Take in an old movie or play. Also available for meetings.

Love the Paramount!!!! Great theatre to watch ANY movie or LIVE performance. We've been going there since the 1970's; our favorite theatre in Abilene.
