“Step back in time!”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

The renovations that took years was excellent in preserving as much of the original decor as possible. Seating is excellent in perspective to the stage for live performances. It is absolutely breath taking and a must to visit and enjoy!

“Lovely intimate venue”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

The historic Paramount Theater hosts many cultural events throughout the year. It is small enough that all seats provide a good view, and beautifully restored. Its location on the Downtown Mall makes for a very convenient evening out with many wonderful restaurants just steps away.

“Wonderful and Beautiful Theater”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

The place is so lovely and we enjoyed seeing and watching Jeanne Robertson, a comedienne. The volunteer staff is so friendly and helpful and the seats are quite comfy too. The colors are vibrant and the place is immaculate.

“An evening with Pink Martini”
Reviewed October 13, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

A wonderful, renovated theater that brings in top notch entertainment for all tastes. Didn't think I would ever get to see Pink Martini on the east coast but the Paramount continues to surprise with their programs. Next month we will be seeing Gordon Lightfoot.
