    Everyone says how beautiful it is, and they're not kidding. Literally spent five minutes soaking it all in.

    A gorgeous venue in a restored, historic theatre that hosts everything from plays to movies to concerts. The best thing, in my opinion, is the showing of classic films.

    This is a truly beautiful theater! The gold leading in the ceiling and walls are gorgeous! I must come back!

    For movies, definitely sit in the front row of the balcony! Best seats in the house

    Ladies! The downstairs bathroom line at intermission ALWAYS looks worse than it most fast. If you're a first-timer here, go to the DOWNSTAIRS bathroom...way bigger.

    Ladies! Don't let the long bathroom lines at intermission scare you...go to the downstairs bathroom. The downstairs bathroom always moves fast.

    Hear the Municipal Band of Charlottesville at their free concerts on Tuesday nights in the summer!

    Don't shy away from shows mid-week, you can make it here and back in an evening. Leave work at 3. Read more

    Opened in 1931, it is distinctly known for its segregation among African Americans during that time. Restored to its former glory, the Paramount opened again in 2004 after being closed for over 30 yrs

    Beautiful renovations and check it out for movie night. You can buy beer, wine, and popcorn during the movie.
