The Historic Paramount

I’m looking forward to our first foray to the annual Summer Film Series at The Paramount this weekend, we’ll see “It Happened One Night”, the classic Frank Capra Academy Award Winning 1934 Comedy starring Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert.

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.
