    Time for a music break? $10 and you’re in for a SXSW Film screening, usually with a Director’s Q&A. We wouldn’t expect you to take a bbq & booze break too, they deliver direct to your chair!

    Check out some of the movies and double headers at Paramount Theatre for the Summer Film Series. Great way to get out of the heat!

    The 1915 Vaudeville-era theater presents musicals, plays, comedians and musicians - both touring and homegrown. The Summer Classic Film Series is a great way to stay cool on hot summer nights.

    Using the Paramount’s night lights as a backdrop for pics? Turn off your flash or set your camera to Night Portrait, perfect for getting good exposure of both the subject and illuminated background.

    Has 1,300 seats. You can be standing in a line around the corner to Brazos and still get in. For popular films don't leave gaps next to a person beside you to avoid people stepping over you.
