Just walking around the theater is a treat. It has been restored and preserved so well. The acoustics are good from "the peanut gallery" to the orchestra, although the stage is better from the orchestra!

Attended the five-hour-plus historic film, Napoleon, and loved every minute of it! Only downside is that parking and/or pick-ups and drop-offs are a bit challenging due to the Paramount's downtown location. The interior of the Paramount is beautiful!
