A note from the Paramount...
Thank you all for bearing with us this morning for the surprise Dave Chappelle announce.
Paramount Members and Patrons: We found out right before you did! This is a surprise show by all accounts. We just got the call from Live Nation at midnight last night asking if we could make this happen, and we did! They also let us send an e-mail to our database and post soon thereafter on our social networks to show a little love to those that support our theatres.
As non-profit venues, while we would love to have the means (servers, capacity) to have complete smooth sailing on such a big show with such a quick and widespread announce, we must work with what we can and we thank you for understanding. Even the largest venues are, at times, crashed by events like this.
As for the unfortunate film cancellations (which you know we hate to do), a show of Dave Chappelle’s magnitude does wonders to help support our non-profit theatres and, ultimately, makes it possible for us to bring more programming like the Summer Classic Film Series to Austin.
For those of you that were unable to grab tickets, we hear you and we understand your fan-pain. For those that did get in, we hope you enjoy the show.
Again, thank you all for supporting the Paramount and the history of ATX.
