Summer Classic Film Series at The Paramount this Weekend
The Summer Classic Film Series has something for everyone and we always enjoy picking a few films to see and the Paramount Theatre on Congress Avenue is a gorgeous venue for a movie and one of the last surviving classic theatres in the United States. Originally called the Majestic Theatre when it opened in 1915, it has served as a legitimate theatre stage and featured such acting legends as Helen Hayes, Sandra Bernhardt, The Barrymores, and The Marx Brothers when they were a vaudeville act. It was also a silent movie house and, today, a music and comedy venue hosting George Carlin, Rodney Dangerfield, and Joan Rivers, among many others. Texas singer/songwriter Lyle Lovett will usually play The Paramount a few times a year.
