Summer Classic Film Series


This year, the Paramount Summer Classic Film Series begins by remembering the cinematic heroes who thrilled us, the iconic comedians who made us laugh even in dark times, and the silver screen lovers who brought tears to our eyes. From two of cinema’s greatest romantic pairings and two of its most hilarious performers (or four if you count all three of Peter Sellers’ characters!) to action-packed epics and a legendary classic from Francis Ford Coppola, our Opening Weekend lineup is just a small sample of the many genres and eras we will be featuring throughout the summer at the Paramount and Stateside Theatres.

We will have musicals and Westerns, scary movies and screwball comedies, thrilling adventures and foreign favorites, and weekend matinees for the whole family. And, in a year when those who have so often been marginalized are bravely telling their stories both on and off screen, we look forward to celebrating filmmakers who, despite longstanding industry prejudices and seemingly insurmountable obstacles, have given us cinematic experiences that we will never forget. Look out for the full lineup in May, and we’ll see you at the movies!

Transit Options

While finding parking in downtown Austin can be a challenge, finding a transit line that gets you there is easy! Try transit to and from the Paramount Theatre. It costs less than covered parking and you’ll avoid circling the city looking for a spot. Nearby transit stops include 8th / Congress, 11th/Congress, 8th/Lavaca, 8th/Guadalupe or take MetroRail to the Downtown Station.

Transit Routes: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10, 17, 19, 20, 21, 22, 30, 37, 801, 803, 985 and MetroRail will get you there!
