Did you know…The Paramount Theatre opened in 1928 as the Seattle Theatre?
Restored in 1995 at the cost of $20 million dollars, The Paramount Theatre has been brought back to its original splendor, just as Seattle audiences would have experienced it as they passed through the doors for the first time on March 1st, 1928.
Paramount Theatre tours are on the first Saturday of every month. Please meet in front of the main entrance of the theatre – on the corner of 9th and Pine – by 10 am. The tours will last approximately 90 minutes and will be lead by members of our well-versed volunteer staff.
“Over 450,000 patrons pass through the doors of The Paramount each year. These free tours give the public a chance to learn more about this historic Theatre while giving them a glimpse behind the scenes,” said Josh LaBelle, Executive Director of Seattle Theatre Group – the non-profit performing arts organization that owns and operates the historic Paramount and Moore Theatres.
