  • Come out of the pandemic and go to this theater. They replaced the seats before the pandemic and revived my sitting experience. It's not plush but a real improvement. We have season tickets in row...

  • Paramount Theatre is a gorgeous and historical theatre. The inside is beautiful with great friendly staff. My friend and I went and saw Rock of Ages and it was a super fun and amazing show! The performers did a great job and put on a fun show that got the whole crowd dancing. This is the perfect spot for a date night or night out with friends. It is super easy to get to with convenient and easy parking. I will definitely be going back for another show in the future!
  • Attended the amazing Dream Girls production. The show was top notch with great actors and phenomenal music to make for a great performance experience. The temperature was uncomfortably warm, but it didn’t totally detract from the experience.
