Beautiful, ornate, old theatre with lots of history. Named for Texarkana native Ross Perot and his sister. We enjoyed the tour.

A fabulous restoration of an historic movie theater and well worth a visit. Many name stars are booked into what was once called the Paramount in OUR earlier years. We always love the many choices we have there. J&J

A fine place for fine arts. It is a quintessential experience for such a small town to have such a place for concerts , symphonies, plays and other fine art viewing. Turn of century stuff in a small package.

Completely Restored Theater. Ross "Perot" Theater is home to hundreds of plays, events, and concerts. The historic theater is beautiful. Downtown Texarkana has a few restaurants in walking distance and is a safe area.

When we went there were no regularly scheduled tours. We went into the office area and visited with the folks who just offered the tour. It was very informal.
