FAQ

What is Paramount Bristol?
Originally a movie theatre, this art deco venue has been fully restored and is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing the best possible live entertainment experience in the region. Also known as The Paramount Center for the Arts, Paramount Bristol is our “shorthand” name.

Why do I not have sequential seat numbers?
During the original construction of Paramount Bristol, even numbers were used to denote the right side of the house, with odd numbers used to denote the left. We have maintained this numbering in our restored theater today.
