    Beautiful theater in downtown Seattle. Great seats most anywhere in Orchestra section. Pre-order your intermission drink to save time since the restroom lines are huge!

    Beautifully maintained movie palace from the golden age of Hollywood. One of the few theaters left with the original theater pipe organ that was originally installed probably in the 1920's.

    The Paramount Theatre is a fantastic concert venue, so it only seems fitting that we bring a fantastic concert to it! Come see legendary Tommy Emmanuel on 6/30! You won't be sorry! Read more

    If there's a huge line across the street to get in, don't just walk up to the door. Get in line with everyone else! Wrapping around two blocks only took 15 minutes anyway.

    If you have to go during intermission, just piss yourself. Spending the 2nd act soaking in your own urine is guaranteed to be a less miserable experience than navigating the line for the restrooms.

    The entertainment is amazing, but the sound acoustics are primitive. If sitting in the 2nd or 3rd balcony be prepared to strain a bit to hear.

    This place is amazing. The scope, artwork, and architecture all made spectacular when tripping on shrooms for a stand up show.

    If your "seat" has a little too much meat, be ready for a squeeze. Also, if you're taller than 5', be ready to become the person in front of you's personal set of knee-earmuffs.

    Gorgeous theater and wonderful for seeing theatrical productions but absolute garbage as a concert venue. Good luck being able to see the stage at all if you're not 6'5"

    There's a hidden bar in the main section facing the middle doors. It's hard to see but usually less of a line than the main one in the lobby

    Beautiful theatre with a plethora of productions. Mezz 3 seems too high up to truly benefit from the set details and performances.

    Free tours on the first Saturday of each month at 10AM! Each tour is different based on what events are in town! Check out the Paramount Club & Projection Room! And sign the guestbook when leaving!

    Support the arts by donating to STG! They have donor tours of the theatre where you can learn a lot about the history of the theatre.

    The piano. On the first floor. Was obtained by deep sea divers. Poseidon is looking for it. Please tell him he'll never get it back. Send keys for ransom.
