Blast From the Past: Holiday Evening Candlelight Tours of the Historic Theater

Did you spend the holidays at The Paramount? This holiday season, we held our inaugural Holiday Evening Candlelight Tours of the Historic Theater. Not only were these tours a wonderful opportunity to see the Theater in all its festive splendor, they also gave families the chance to pass their love for The Paramount down to the next generation.

One Candlelight Tour patron, who brought her grandsons along to experience the magic, was particularly pleased with the tour and left us the following review: “Our tour was fabulous through the entire candlelit halls, up and down, ALL around. From every thoughtfully decorated tree to each very special staff member and very sharp docent, Board members, volunteers – oh my! They fed our minds as each station leader educated us. In the quiet and beauty and knowledge, these men and women flawlessly created true Holiday Spirit for our hearts. And the unexpected dessert bar and [specialty drinks] truly set the stage for gratitude to all who labor at our beloved Paramount on Virginians’ behalf. No wonder authors, entertainers, scientists, and school children say they want to come back again and again! Thank you. Thank you.”

While we are diligently working to reschedule many of our spring events, which contribute significantly toward our yearly operating budget, we know we will suffer a devastating loss of revenue as a local nonprofit theater. Please consider making a donation to The Paramount.
