The Paramount is a beautiful theater! The building alone makes it a must-see. Then, there's the programming. The Paramount attracts world-class talent. This is a can't miss venue in Austin.

Thank goodness someone rescued this grand old dame. A great place to hear Lyle Lovett and his Large Band.... or Grupo Fantasma will have the rocking in the aisles...

We love this place. It is a beautiful old theater. The seats could use replacing - but keep in mind that its a work in progress.

We have been for Craig Ferguson Live, which was fantastic. We also have been for several double features... Aliens & Star Trek 4, and then Breakfast Club & Pretty in Pink.

Great for the family, plenty of choice.

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.
