Glamour and glitz from a bygone era make every live show here a special night out.. In Short Opened in 1930 as a vaudeville house and later used as a movie theater, the majestic Paramount is now a live entertainment emporium. Its art deco flourishes, replete with tapestries and chandeliers, contrasts provocatively with the contemporary acts gracing its stage. Concerts, musicals, stand-up comedy and children's shows all find their ideal setting amid the Paramount's impressive aura. Acoustics are great here, providing ample listening pleasure from every one of the 2,015 seats.
