I went to the Paramount for the Oakland Symphony and the building is magnificent. I arrived early, and we spent 45 minutes walking through the building. The art deco is beautifully restored - the powder rooms are amazing. They do tours on Saturdays - well worth the $5 !!

Well worth a visit. Terrific art deco interior harkening back to the 1920s. Great if you can make a performance, but worth it even if you only have time to take a tour.

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!
