I am a season ticket holder and always enjoy the shows. Plenty parking space around the theatre. The show price is very reasonable and close to the Casino. You can goto Casino first to spend some time in the afternoon. Then pick a nice restaurant...More

We went to see the Million Dollar Quartet. It was phenomenal! I wanted to get up and dance! The theater is very quaint and easy to get to. We parked in a lot across the street for $4.

What a beautiful building. I recently saw the Million Dollar Quartet at the Paramount and this was my first visit to this theater. The visibility, pitch and comfort of the seats, and the acoustics are all first rate. The Art-Deco and Venetian interiors are magnificent.

Theater in downtown Aurora. Hosts individual shows and Broadway series. Easy in and out. A number of local restaurants available prior to show. No bad seats. Proximity to Chicago gets actors and productions of downtown quality with lower cost and home in 10-15 minutes
