The Paramount Theatre has a rich history, having been a home to vaudeville, silent movies, “talkies,” music, dance, and Broadway shows for the last 90 years. This venue is one of the few theatres that still exist out of the 1,200 theatres that were designed by John Eberson of Chicago in the early 1900s. Today, the theatres offers theatrical performances of all kinds for viewers of all ages, including a Broadway series of plays and a children’s series featuring works such as Charlotte’s Web, The Wizard of Oz, and The Velveteen Rabbit.

This project is funded and supported in part by a grant from the Texas Commission on the Arts and in part by the City of Austin Economic Growth & Redevelopment Services Office/Cultural Arts Division believing an investment in the Arts is an investment in Austin’s future.
