Not a bad seat in the house. Great place for a concert, I'm not into musicals but have gone and most people seem to enjoy it. I wish they would have more famous bands play there.

Have been to numerous productions and each one at the Paramount Theatre is so very professionally done. The building itself is worth a visit. It was heavily damaged by the flood of 2008 and has been completely restored to a magnificent state. I would highly...More

This beautifully restored theater is the host to a variety of events in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. It is a fairly large venue. It hosts the local symphony, special guest appearances and local theater events. A real show piece.

The sound was sub-par, 4 girls were towards the nosebleed section cheering and dancing.. the elderly ushers got about 4 cops over there, to create a huge distraction to try and eject the ladies.. which lasted for about 3 of the 12 songs played.

This is one of those old time theaters with great architecture. I attended a concert here (Classical Mystery Tour) and it was great. Acoustics are good, seats are great (I did sit near the front). As another reviewer states, it is a step back in...More
