Hate the seats. Plays are always good. Have to get aisle seats. Very helpful with walkers. No place to put drinks.

Fabulous theatre
Mar 2020 • Friends
The Paramount is a fabulous theater - beautiful decor, comfortable seats and top notch productions. We recently saw “The Secret of My Success.” The acting, dancing and singing, as well as the set, were all first-rate. We couldn’t have enjoyed it more. Come early and grab a bite to eat (tasty hot dogs, cookies, etc.) and drink. They have a wide selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, which you can take to your seat.

Beautiful theater. Award winning productions.

The Paramount started the revival of downtown Aurora and made it a destination of its own. The theater has been beautifully restored and, as of recently, has all new comfy seats. It is intimate enough that there isn't a bad seat, although my personal preference is for seats on the floor. The Jeff Awards have started noticing the Paramount, and its shows are now receiving many nominations. There are four Broadway-style shows per season and the prices are so reasonable (we have a subscription for the season and each ticket is $37.00. Prices are slightly higher for non-subscribers). Other shows and musicians perform throughout the year as well.

More and more restaurants are opening nearby to cater to the pre-theater and post-theater crowd, so you can make quite an enjoyable evening with dinner and a show.

An insider tip: you can avoid the long lines for the restrooms in the lobby by going upstairs to the restrooms. 😊

Beautiful theater
Dec 2019
Just saw Beauty and the Beast there, and it was the best play I've ever seen. It was fantastic, and the entire music and costumes were done so beautifully. I cant even express how amazing the experience was, and it is a must do. This is the second play I've seen here, and they are just so good!

Beautiful venue

One of Illinois beautifully restored theatres. Entering the theatre is like traveling back in time to a golden era. It is located in a quieter, older section of Aurora.

I am a seasonal member of the Theater and I have never been disappointed. The productions are Broadway quality at main street prices. The theater is becoming a very important core to the downtown Aurora corridor. If you have the opportunity to see a show you shouldn't be disappointed.

A Feast for the Eyes
Jan 2019
The Paramount Theatre started its life as a movie palace, in 1931. By the 1970s, this part of its life was over & was something of a white elephant. It survived because some visionaries, under the auspices of the Aurora Civic Center Authority, worked to make possible the complete restoration of this gem. Thie restoration took 2 years, at the end of which the theatre opened as the Paramount Arts Center. Since then, the Paramount has served as the town square for Aurora. It has been the venue for all kinds of entertainments, especially its very popular Broadway shows series, & other kinds of programs. It has hosted plays, musicals, concerts, comedy shows, speakers, dance programs, vintage movies & more. Whatever the event, there is always a double benefit—enjoyment of the event itself & taking in the lush beauty of the auditorium with its beautiful Art Deco ornamentation. This is truly one of the most beautiful theatres in the country.

I took my grand daughter to see Beauty and The Beast. The production was first class. The theatre is beautiful and the staff is friendly, helpful and accommodating.
