The Paramount and State theatres are fine old theatres that are pleasant place to see any production! They are located right downtown on Congress, and have a unique charm all their own.

Too darn crowded for a big guy. Doubt I will ever go back regardless of who is starring there.

My knees were under my chin and the seats were so close there was no way to even change positions.

This theatre has good acoustics and beautiful architecture. There are good sight lines from just about every seat.

Been in Austin a long time and the artists/shows/etc they have at the Paramount are excellent. However getting a decent seat is a joke. Spell nosebleed and maybe behind a column. Beautiful venue. None better so it's such a shame. The summer movie is always a must and not as difficult to get a good seat. We always do that as a tradition each year.

Just a great experience in a small theatre. It is like going back 75 years in time.
