“A classic moviegoing experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013

This theater is a throwback to days gone by. Always a treat to visit, whether it is for a film, play, or other event. Their popcorn is THE BEST in town!

“Perfectly resotered Piece of Americana!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2013

I was told this is one of the last standing & one of like 2 or 3 operating Paramount Theaters, & had to check it out! WHAT A FIND!!! The theater play movies from Holiwoods "Hayday" (20-50's). It is impecablly restored & even has the moving stars & clouds on the ceiling! It was a real treat! One of the best old movie houses I've ever been to. It was like stepping back in time! AWESOME!!!!

“Don't Build 'em Like this Anymore”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

The architecture alone is worth the visit. There are simply not many theaters left that have such a classic style. The shows are always fun and very well priced. If you are in the Abilene area and have not yet been to the Paramount, it should definitely be at the top of your list!
