As a local non-profit, it is a treat each time The Paramount Theater opens its doors to the community for free events. Whether sponsored by the theater, or through a partnership with a local agency, bringing the community in for no cost is a pleasure. Free events such as broadcasted UVA Men’s Basketball games and the World Cup on the big screen, or screenings of holiday movies take a lot of hard work by volunteers and staff. We are proud to be a part of such a giving community of staff and sponsors who help make these events possible.
We are thrilled to offer the following upcoming free community events:
Free Historic Tours of The Paramount Theater
Learn about The Paramount’s beginnings in 1931 and our long legacy of community involvement from the Great Depression to the magical reopening. See the backstage Wall of Fame, where hundreds of artists have left their autographs and more! Reservations for the tour are strongly recommended, as space is limited.
Upcoming Tour Schedule:
- Saturday, March 18 at 11:00AM
- Wednesday, March 29 at 12:00PM and 5:30PM
- Saturday, April 1 at 11:00AM
