The Paramount Theater is a beloved Austin institution. This venue has been entertaining Austin for close to 100 years. It is one of the many venues located in the heart of the Lone Star state's capital. It is within walking distance to some of Austin’s finest hotels, restaurants, and clubs.
The Paramount Theater has been lovingly restored and hosts a variety of shows ranging from musicals ("Damn Yankees"), to concerts (Kris Kristofferson), film festivals (SXSW and Banff), comedy shows (The Kids in the Hall ), and individual speakers (Shirley MacLaine).
The Paramount is a non-profit institution with show proceeds going towards the theater's upkeep. Like many theaters of its size, it has 3 levels: main floor, mezzanine, and balcony. The best seats in the house are considered to be in the center front on the main floor. There are no obstructions in the theater but the main hall is long and curves out a bit towards the back of the theater.
The best way to buy Paramount tickets is directly from the theater. The Paramount also sells tickets (and memberships) online. This is another Austin venue that sells out quickly. If tickets cannot be obtained directly from the Paramount, TicketCity will likely have some tickets available.
A visit to the Paramount Theater is a journey into another era of entertainment. Take the opportunity to see a play, film, or a favorite musician at The Paramount Theater. You won't be disappointed.
