We love the Paramount Theatre in downtown Aurora! They have first class productions and entertainment in a beautiful theatre. All the creativity, passion and commitment of any Chicago venue without the price. Take the train in and see what you've been missing.

My family and I had a great time on Monday Classic Movie Night. Admission was $1 per person and popcorn drinks and beer were available in the concessions area. I would highly recommend this place for a family night out. We plan on coming back again.

Great artists from the 1960's sang all their greatest hits, and soon had the audience singing along with them

The theatre is beautiful- the Broadway series are the best entertainment value going in the western burbs- if you enjoy live theater, you will want to check out their Broadway Subscription Series- buy 4 tickets, get 4 tickets free....the quality and talent are truly exceptional.

Concerts are top notch. Seats are comfortable and easy to find. We have gone downtown and have complained about the traffic, the parking, the cost of the tickets and the high price of eating before or afterwards. It is even worse if it raining or snowing. Living in the Fox Valley makes the Paramount THE PLACE TO GO.

We have gone to the Paramount since the Broadway series started and enjoyed almost all of them. Why go to Chicago and spend extra time and money. Great historic theatre. Wish the seats were wider.

Attended a concert by the Fox Valley Orchestra and found the acoustics to be very good, seats (thought on the older side) were comfortable, restroom was clean and beverage area large enough for this size venue.

The first show I saw at the Paramount was Mary Poppins and by far one of the best shows I have seen to date. The production was excellent. The theater is smaller which gives you a chance to see better and not miss anything. They do have a bar downstairs to get drinks and snacks. Since Mary Poppins we have... More
