“Nice theater offering great shows to the community.”
Reviewed May 19, 2012

This is a historic theater that has been well maintained thanks to the wealthy sponsors. Seating is for approximately 1,200. They do an excellent job putting together their artist series and of course, Ashland is home to the famous Judd duo.

“A fine old building”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

It's always a pleasure to find a theater or cinema that has been preserved rather than demolished or turned into offices or worse. The Paramount has been carefully restored with much attention payed to maintaining the original feel of the theater. A good place to visit to enjoy a show.

“Big name attractions at a small town venue”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

The architecture alone is worth the trip to the Paramount. I love seeing concerts and plays here, as it is affordable, cozy, easy access and parking. They offer such a wide variety of entertainment choices--there is something for everyone.
I try to coordinate my visits to an event. The attention to preserving historic detail is what drew me to the Paramount initially. The experience is what's kept me coming back.
