Happy Valentine’s Day from all of us at The Paramount! We may be a bit biased, but we think there’s nothing better than a romantic night out in Charlottesville with your sweetheart, whether it’s on Valentine’s Weekend or beyond. Surprise your special someone with a night on the Downtown Mall – and take some inspiration from our Perfect Paramount Downtown Date ideas below!
Remind your honey of the good ole’ days with a flashback night full of fun nostalgia! On Friday, February 17 at 8:00PM, enjoy the sensational Matt Lewis – USA Today’s “Best Elvis in Vegas”, who will show you a night of Burnin’ Love! And before the show, treat yourself to a juicy steak or salmon filet at Water Street Restaurant, right on the Downtown Mall.
Add a French flair to your romantic adventure in Charlottesville! On Sunday, February 19 at 2:00PM, scheme with the quirkiest girl in Montmarte during a screening of Amélie [R]. Then, pop next door for to-die-for French cuisine at Petit Pois. We guarantee you’ll be hearing “je t’aime” before the night is through!
Classy and Classical
For the couple who can’t resist a bit of elegance, there’s nothing more tasteful (literally) than the gift of the absolutely divine chocolate from Gearharts. Treat yourself to a sampling of Gearharts before a visit to The Paramount on Saturday, February 25 at 12:55PM – take your afternoon from classy to classical with our live broadcast of the Metropolitan Opera’s Rusalka, starring the beautiful Kristine Opolais.
Channel Your Inner Child
Sometimes the best Valentine is your little one! Show your kids the time of their life this season with a fun day spent downtown. First, excite their curiosity at the Virginia Discovery Museum, where they can explore scientific exhibits and even a mini Paramount Theater before the real thing! Afterwards, hit the sweet spot with a delicious variety of ice cream at The Paramount’s next door neighbor Chaps. Finish off the night with the unique and visually captivating Momix – Opus Cactus on Sunday, February 26 at 7:30PM at The Paramount, and witness a blend of physical theater, circus, athleticism, and comedy unlike anything your child has ever seen before.
