An opulent showplace that takes you back to the 1930's. The building should be a national historic treasure. They offer classic motion pictures with a fantastic snack bar and always have an intermission. Whenever there's a movie at the Paramount, it is a wonderful evening.

Always enjoy the old movies and new ones too. Great live shows and the restored inside ot this historic theater always makes them better. Atmosphere is the best for enjoying the best Hollywood has to offer.

Took our 1st grader to see Cinderella (the movie) during an afternoon showing. It was a great family outing. They had the piano man at intermission which was a plus. Wish they did family movies more often.
