Amazing 11/19/2008

Didn't think Seattle would have such nice theater - I love the interior decor, the old style building. Seatings are nice, and front rows on the second floor I think gets better view than MF. I went for Jason Mraz's concert and Stomp. Great experience. Lots of paid parkings near by. Free road side parking after 6pm but you'd have to drive around. more

Amazing venue. 10/16/2006

I saw Sufjan Stevens at the Paramount last night, and it was my first concert there. What an incredible venue. The interior is gorgeous and I'm not sure there's a bad seat in the house. We were up on the 3rd mezzanine (a.k.a the nosebleeds) and we still had a great view. The sound was great, the perfect place for a musical concert. more

The Moore Theater 6/12/2006

I saw Kathy Griffin at The Moore Theater on Friday night. It was a good show, but every time I go to The Moore, I wonder why the place is left in such decline inside. I have no idea what the bar area or bathrooms look like (I always just get to my seat in time for the show to start), but the theater itself has big, thick patches of peeling paint on the walls and ceiling. There was a large plywood patch in the floor of the balcony that we had to walk over that gave me faint concern. The seating is tight, but that's no different than other venues, unfortunately. For this show, we were too late purchasing to get good seats so we were all the way in the back of the balcony (only 5 rows left behind us). At this altitude the stage is, of course, a bit of a blur, but I also discovered that it's very hard to hear way back there! I’m sure it would be better if seeing the type of show where the audience sits and listens as opposed to a comedy show where the audience is laughing and responding to the artist. It may also have something to do with the low, oddly curved (and peeling!) ceiling up there, as well. Something I always do appreciate when seeing a show at The Moore Theater is that, because it has no parking of its own, there's no traffic jam after the show. The crowd exits the theater and disperses to various parking lots in the area, allowing the trek out of the city to be really no more difficult than it otherwise would be. I always have the feeling of being punished after seeing a show in a big venue; stuck in horrific traffic just to get out of the massive parking area, and then the nightmare often continues all the way to the freeway entrance. Nobody should have to be tempted to leave a show early just to be able to avoid the struggle of departure. more

Very majestic theater 5/17/2006

I always feel a sense of glee after I purchase tickets to see a show at the Paramount. I saw my first concert there, Weird Al, and since I've seen many other acts such as David Bowie to Rob Zombie to Primus. But I've also seen more than my fare share of musicals as well. Little Shop of Horrors, Phantom of the Opera, and so forth. And don't I dare forget the comedy! I highly commend the booking agent! My only poor experience was during a showing of Cats. 2 theater employees stood in front of me and my friend and talked all through the first half. How rude. more

Don't get stuck in the back or you'll feel like you're watching the show on tv 4/8/2006

This is a beautiful theatre and is a fun place to see a show, but don't get stuck too far in the back. You're much better off up in the balcony sections that way in the back on the bottom. Also good is when it's GA on the floor by the stage. Drinks are expensive in the bar here, as would be expected I guess. more

Good for certain shows 10/31/2005

I came here to see Kids in the Hall a few years ago (comedy act) and it was a great theater. I then saw Dave Attell and Mitch Hedburg there (comedy act) and it was great as well. At that point, the Paramount could do no wrong, but then I saw the Strokes play there (rock act), and in my opinion, it's a horrible place to see a rock show. Maybe it was just a dumb sound engineer and normally it's amazing, but that night was not so good. If you want to see something more mellow, or theater/comedy, you will love this place. more

They Don't Make Them Like This Any More! 9/28/2005

It really doesn't matter what you see at the Paramount, it will generally be an enjoyable evening. Just entering the building, with its opulent decor, feels special. No chrome or cheap carpeting here, but plenty of velvet, ornamental plaster and twinkling chandeliers. The auditorium is also great, with a large capacity that still feels intimate and good acoustics. more

Great Theatre Experience 9/16/2005

This is a really nice theatre, whether you're there for a silent film (during their silent film showings) or a concert. It is much more intimate that a lot of venues for concerts, while providing that vintage theatre feel that you don't see much these days. They are a bit expensive, though, but this is pretty common in Seattle. more

Amazing as always 8/22/2005

The Paramount lives up to the grandness of its name. The theater is large and luxurious, the shows always well-done. I am always especially impressed with the sets at the Paramount, which seem to have had a lot of thought and work put into them. I never worry that a show at the Paramount will not live up to expectations, as long as I have parking under control. more

A Timeless Classic 8/19/2005

If you don't know the Paramount, you don't know Seattle. This historical theater has played host to some amazing musical artists as well as some of the most fantastic touring Broadway shows. I have enjoyed countless shows here over the years, and was thrilled when the Paramount was remodeled in the 90's. They retained the classic decor and charm, but upgraded the venue to reflect the high tech nature of the region. more

Fantastic place to see a live show 8/18/2005

The Paramount is the type of theatre that just isn't being built in anymore: regal, opulent, and classy. The acoustics are outstanding, and even though the hall is deceptively large, there is a feeling of intimacy even from the balcony. I have seen everything from rock shows here to Broadway musicals, and the experience is always memorable. more

Hard to rate a theater :) 8/18/2005

yes, like the subject says, it is difficult to rate a theater since really the only thing I can judge is the shows. Even with that said, I do like the seasons that the Paramount get are better, on the whole. Also, the paramount gets lots of concerts, and comedians. Though generally the show dictates the theater (more like always) I like the Paramount because the parking is easy compared to the 5th, or Moore, and for the directionally challenged (such as myself) its right off the freeway. Also, the Paramount is a beautiful theater with wonderful decorations and atmosphere! more

The Paramount 8/4/2005

I love going to see bands play at the paramount. The venue is smaller so i always feel like the band is playing just for me. They have great seating, no matter where i sit i get to hear them, Not always great with sight but still. I love going there it is a great place to go. more

Better than the movie studio 7/31/2005

When I saw Margaret Cho, the theater attendants made throngs of people sit in nosebleed territory because they claimed that there were a bunch of people "about to show up" who had purchased all the seats in the close sections and were caught in traffic. We all moved down any way, and besides, that incident was a mere blemish in the smooth, creamy skin that is my paramount theater experiences. The theater fits many a body, but it's small enough to get a good view of any show you show up for. From the Smashing Pumpkins to Rent to Cabaret, every show looks exactly right at that theater. Parking can be hard, though. more
