Get Outa Town: Austin- The Paramount Summer Classics Film Series

It’s safe to say the modern movie theater experience is not what it once was. Streaming services, along with a whole bunch of other national factors, nearly killed the traditional theater industry. And yet…there is something undeniably special about seeing a great film on the big screen. It can be a truly immersive experience! The Paramount Theatre invites you back to a simpler time, when great entertainment at the theater was an experience.

Grab your popcorn, get your soda, and bring your friends to experience some of your all-time favorite films on the enormous silver screen as part of their Classic Film Series. July’s films are something special!
