ABOUT THE PARAMOUNT THEATER
The 1,040 seat Paramount Theater of Charlottesville has been a local landmark since 1931. After holding a prominent place in our community for decades, The Paramount closed in 1974 as business in downtown faded. After an extensive restoration, the fully renovated Paramount Theater re-opened in 2004. As we approach twelve years since reopening, The Paramount has now served hundreds of thousands of Central Virginians and attracted visitors from far and wide. Some of the world's most celebrated artists have graced its stage. The tally of students and teachers who have attended educational programs is over 158,000!
As a nonprofit performing arts center, our mission is to:
•offer the Central Virginia community a wide range of arts, education, and entertainment events with the goal of reaching diverse audiences and enriching our community
•present educational programs for school-age children, teens, college students, and the community at large
•make its facilities and resources available for use by charitable, arts, community, and other organizations and individuals for presentation of their performances and events
