This classic theater is a wonderful setting with the perfect ambiance for the classic films they screen, as well as the artists' performances they sometimes host. Our favorite thing to do on Halloween night is to dress up in costume and catch the horror classics they have every year!

You've just entered the Alhambra in Southern Spain. The stars are twinkling in a lightly clouded sky and the wonderful movie of 50 yrs, ago is about to begin. A renowned scholar steps up in front of you and explains much about the shooting, background, and actors in this classic movie. This is real entertainment at its best.

One of the favorites in Abilene. They have an old movie each month and many other events throughout the year. It is nicely restored and looks amazing. The popcorn is good too.

It's always a treat to attend a classic movie or a live event at the Paramount. You can't beat the beautiful surroundings and appreciate the love & care that went into the restoration of the building.

If you love history, you will love this historic theatre in downtown Abilene. Twinkling lights in the ceiling, a fun place to watch old movies or see a concert venue! The concession stand downstairs makes you feel like you're stepping back in time. You will love the vintage architectural features this theatre has to offer. It's a treat to attend... More

My fiancé and I went to this theatre for a concert we had both like listening to and was convenient close to where we lived as they were on tour. When we first sat down and looked around we were amazed to see the architecture of the building and colors of how they came together so beautiful. It's definitely a... More

My favorite annual event here is the 24fps short film festival held on the second weekend in November. They also have performances by many community groups and regularly feature classic Hollywood films from the past. Place is clean, seats comfy, and food overpriced - but hey this is a movie theater! Located in the right ventricle [headed South] of the... More

We love this theater! Strongly recommend anyone visiting. My daughter is in the Nutcracker every year here. The performance is amazing and so much more beautiful in this gorgeous historic gem of Abilene!

This theater has been restored to its 1930s glory. The entryway has two huge staircases on either end going up to the balcony and down to the restrooms and a snack bar where they serve soft drinks, candy, and popcorn. They play an old movie one weekend each month, and we saw a really cute one called "Goodbye, Mr Chips"... More
