Enjoying a movie or performance at the Paramount is a memorable experience! The beautiful castle-like interior is highlighted by the "night sky" of softly moving clouds and twinkling stars. Reasonably priced refreshments available in the basement. The balcony is also a favorite spot.

Take a step back in time and enjoy a classic. Old theater with a bit of flare. Plays classic like and sometines new ones. Check special showing and can have a nice outing

Most recent visit to the Paramount was to see the performance of August, Osage County. Enjoyed the play but had difficulty hearing some of the dialogue at times. Microphones were not well placed. Seating was good. I have visited the Paramount Theater many many times...More

we have attended plays, movies and concerts at the Paramount. Wonderful facility, beautifully restored. Seating is a bit cramped but not to the point of being uncomfortable.

The Historic Paramount Theater is one of the most treasured points of interest in the Abilene community. It truly is a gift! Beautifully restored to it's 1920s beauty, this theater also treats guests to twinkling stars in the ceiling and moving clouds. The actual structure...More
