“It is located right downtown Aurora”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

My wife and I have been to some events in this theatre. It is a very old theatre but still very nice inside. It is located right downtown Aurora.

From their website:

In 1915, J.J. Rubens and other far-seeing theatre owners formed the Aurora Theater Company—a power group that guided Aurora’s moving picture business.

Recently named one of the Top Ten Theatres in Chicago by the League of Chicago Theatres, the Paramount continues to provide world-class entertainment—including dance, music, Broadway-caliber theatre, and children’s programming—for an annual audience of 150,000 patrons from over 250 communities. The Paramount also hosts free community events and its opulent interiors provide a spectacular backdrop for private functions such as wedding receptions or corporate galas.

Best produced shows in the area! Beautiful theatre-restored to its former glory! Prices for shows not out of your budget. Sight lines excellent and sound quality outstanding.
