Every seat in this beautiful theatre is a "great " seat! I have had the pleasure of seeing everything from my daughters orchestra performance to Clint Black. The acoustics are phenomenal!

The Paramount Arts Center brings in some of the very best talent nationwide. The venue is beautiful and intimate, with great acoustics. My favorite place to see a concert or play.

Great place for live entertainment, all seats are very good, you may not get front row but don't let that discourage you because there is no nose bleed section.

This is a beautiful theater and we attended the musical Peter Pan. The production was very well done. Bravo! The lead, Peter Pan, was outstanding. We sat in the center right section of the balcony. The seats up there were very good. The rows of seats are very close together, though. It's very hard to have people get to their... More

I feel as a resident I am not sure I see the Paramount as a stranger would see it. The building is, if I understand it right, only one of two theaters of its type in existence today and it has been remodeled and restored. From the outside, especially from the back, it doesn't look great. The reinforcement is on... More

This venue did not include a live orchestra and the Moscow Ballet website was misleading when it stated on the Paducah show page "UK Symphony to tour statewide with Moscow Ballet". It should not have included "statewide" in it's advertisement. To the PAC site their site did not say it included a live orchestra. However, I don't see the point... More

No matter what show you choose to attend, you are guaranteed to have an enchanted evening at this venue. The history of this magnificent theater has been meticulously preserved. The acoustics are unmatched and so are the performances. Whether it is a well known star or the local theater group, you will not be disappointed!
