This theatre is one of the top restorations in the United States of an old theatre that had been closed and neglected for many years. The attention to detail is amazing. If you are anywhere in west Texas, go see this beautiful, grand theatre!!!!

An opulent showplace that takes you back to the 1930's. The building should be a national historic treasure. They offer classic motion pictures with a fantastic snack bar and always have an intermission. Whenever there's a movie at the Paramount, it is a wonderful evening.
