Am a member of the Broadway series. Have been from the beginning. All have been well worth the price of the tickets. Can't wait for the new one to begin. No matter were you set you can see the stage.

I could just sit in this theater and enjoy the decorations. Old vintage type details, with modern charm. They have added cafe out front.

We always purchase the Broadway series tickets. It's a 4 show series that brings Broadway shows to Aurora. The cast and crew always deliver a first-class show. The venue has that classic historical feel with high tech lighting and sound.

This is a fantastic venue in the western suburbs for theater. It is reasonably priced no matter what the seats. The quality of the 8 shows we have watched was top notch. Also consider some of the eateries and 'drinkeries' within walking distance before or...More

Knew all the lyrics! What a wonderful musical & at the Paramount, there is not a bad seat in the house. Great local talent. They serve Two Bros which is an added plus!

The Paramount Theatre Broadway Series, is by far, the best entertainment value in the Chicago Burbs. Outstanding performances and superb acting and music. They do need to upgrade the seats - very uncomfortable.

This is a great theater! I have only seen a couple of shows here, but the quality of the shows was terrific and rivals that of downtown Chicago. The theater doesn't seem to have any really bad seats to see your show.

This is an excellent venue! This was the location of my son and daughter-in-law's wedding. The venue is a restored Art Deco styled movie theater used now for theatrical productions, performances and concerts. It is also used to host events and weddings. Kelsey, the event...More

I grew up in NY and the caliber of talent is amazing and for the price, you can't beat it. Broadway has nothing that the Paramount cant offer. I highly recommend the Broadway Series.
