The Paramount originally opened in 1927 as The Huntington Theater, and was the first theater to be built outside of the city limits. At the time, the theater presented vaudeville and movies. Eighty-four years later in 2011, the theater was renovated and taken back to its late 1920s origins as a two-story theater, including original exposed brick, steel and cables replicating the Brooklyn Bridge. Today, it is a top live entertainment venue which hosts a variety of concerts, comedy, boxing and other special events. Our event space, the Founder’s Room, offers a unique venue with a nostalgic urban feel and speakeasy-type rooms, reminiscent of the early days of modern music history.
