The Paramount is truly an Abilene treasure. Whether you're there for a lecture (such as Jay Moore's completely engaging presentation on "lost" Abilene history, a Friday or Saturday date to the Paramount film series, or a stage production, visiting the Paramount is worth the trip. Go back in time... sit in the balcony and eat popcorn and raisettes with your... More

Must see place to go see good old classic movies. This is one of the oldest theaters in Texas, and they have some real good old movies, and some live shows as well.

What a marvelous, dreamy place in Abilene! It has been called "The Jewel of Abilene." Rescued from the wrecking ball in the 1980s and meticulously restored to its former 1930 glory and stunning beauty (at a cost of $6 million dollars), this is a treasure of a theatre for this region of Texas! Its reincarnation was the impetus for the... More

Lots of good memories here. And pretty cheap... More
