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.

Took our 1st grader to see Cinderella (the movie) during an afternoon showing. It was a great family outing. They had the piano man at intermission which was a plus. Wish they did family movies more often.
