Holiday magic awaits you, your family, and your friends at the historic nonprofit Paramount Theater! The Theater stands ready, in all its holiday finery, for the return of our candlelight tours. Join us for an evening complete with multiple trees of grandeur, surrounded by the soft glow of festive lights and holiday decorations throughout the Theater. This family-friendly group tour includes individual candles to light the way that enhances the festive holiday feeling. You will be traveling through the historic Paramount on a docent-guided tour that makes stops in our Lobby, Auditorium, and Stage, a sneak peek of our star dressing rooms, the historic balcony, and the 4th floor including the newly redesigned Founders Lounge. The tour concludes with a complimentary festive drink, holiday cookies, and a number of other surprises. The brightly shimmering decorations provide beautiful backdrops for personal holiday photos as you travel through the Theater, hearing stories dating all the way back to the Theater’s opening in 1931. Hosted by Theater Staff, Volunteers, and Board, this backstage peek into the Theater during the holidays promises to become a family tradition for years to come. The Paramount brings magic to the community throughout the year but is all the more magical during the holiday season. Tickets are limited, reserve your spot today!
