“Fantastic place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Well worth a visit. Terrific art deco interior harkening back to the 1920s. Great if you can make a performance, but worth it even if you only have time to take a tour.

“Beautiful Venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We just saw Leonard Cohen at the Paramount. This is such a great venue--intimate and elegant. I've seen the Oakland Orchestra and several films here as well. It's a class act.

“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Came to the Leonard Cohen concert here and was blown away by the facility itself. My only regret was not being aware until too late they give public tours the first and third Saturdays each month. A fantastic art deco theatre restored with obvious care and love for the period. Wow.
