Recently been back here for the first time in a while. This venue is fantastic. It is beautifully old. This time around, we sat on the 3rd floor, but the view was not bad at all, and neither was the sound. Gotta go there more often. One thing though, we could only find the bathroom in lower lounge (because there are no signs except for this one), and it involves lots of up & down the stairs if you are sitting on upper floor, just to be aware!
This theater is beautiful! They did a great job restoring it in the 90's. Sadly we were there for a show recently and it seemed a little run down. There was carpet that was separated and paint that was worn. Hopefully it will get another makeover soon. It still is one of the best places to see live theater in Seattle.
I have been to this theatre probably around 10 times for different musicals and events, and I can easily say that every time was fantastic. The first few times it was easy to get lost, and I will say that I still do get lost on occasion, but once you know which stairs go where, you're set. The concessions they offer here are good, and the seats are always fantastic. It's somewhat hard to see on the third mezzanine, so if you sit up there I would recommend binoculars, but seats anywhere are simply exquisite. The designs on the ceiling about the stage and the seats are amazing, as well as the work in the halls, by the stairs, and even in the bathrooms. This theatre is beautiful, hosts wonderful productions, and I would 100% recommend it to anyone.
The inside is very beautiful. I don't believe there are any bad seats in the entire place. The acoustics were good. The only issue is there was like no leg room in the seats and I felt very packed together with other concert goers.
The Paramount Theater is a beautiful venue. Built in 1928, the architecture and decor is a shining, or better to say, "gilded" example of the vaudeville era. To say that performance spaces are not built like this anymore is a gross understatement and visit here is worth it if only for the trip you'll get to take back in time in the process.
