About The Paramount Theater

Originally a movie palace, The Paramount Theater opened in 1931. It once hosted films, war bond drives, fashion shows, cartoons for kids, and musical artists, before closing its doors in 1974. Thanks to the diligence of those in the greater Charlottesville region, the theater was saved from threats of demolition, instead undergoing renovations before reopening in 2004. It now presents a variety of arts, education, and entertainment events, such as London's National Theatre, The Lyric Opera Virginia, comedians, musicians, and more.
