We just saw Leonard Cohen at the Paramount. This is such a great venue--intimate and elegant. I've seen the Oakland Orchestra and several films here as well. It's a class act.

Nutcracker setting is superb! Bring your camera! BART right outside so transportation not a problem!

Came to the Leonard Cohen concert here and was blown away by the facility itself. My only regret was not being aware until too late they give public tours the first and third Saturdays each month. A fantastic art deco theatre restored with obvious care and love for the period. Wow.

If you love art deco buildings, see a ballet (we saw The Nutcracker). Check out everything....even the art deco restrooms. I love it when buildings are saved and redone to their original, saving the old for the next generation.
