Organizational Background

Built in 1915, the Paramount Theatre has served Austin for nearly a century now. It stands next door to the State Theatre,constructed in 1935. Together, as the Austin Theatre Alliance, these spaces are acoustically more intimate, visually more appealing,and historically more significant than just about any other theatre in the region. Both are contributing structures to the Congress Avenue National Historic District, and the Paramount Theatre is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Theatrescontinue to serve as anchors in the downtown area for performing arts events, film screenings, and our education and outreachprograms. Artists like Harry Houdini, Katherine Hepburn, and Helen Hays graced the Paramount stage in its early days. The venuescontinue to remain relevant to the community with a contemporary line-up of stars such as Lyle Lovett, Sheryl Crow, and Dr. MayaAngelou. Each year, more than 200,000 people pass through our doors to take in first-rate performing arts events and films.

Our Mission: Inspired by the power of the arts to change lives, the Austin Theatre Alliance strives to engage all Central Texansthrough extraordinary live performances and films, to ignite the intellect and imagination of our youths, and to ensure thepreservation of the historic Paramount & Stateside Theatres; the crown jewels of downtown Austin.

To this end, the Austin Theatre Alliance has maintained its longstanding commitment to provide access to the arts for all Central Texans. Through our Education & Outreach programming, formally organized in 2008, we impact more than 18,000 childrenannually, seventy-five percent of the students are from the low-income, Title I schools most in need of our support. Our programsgive students the thrill of attending a live performance at our historic venues, engage them in their classrooms, and provide animportant resource for teachers wishing to incorporate creative learning techniques into their pedagogy. In a time of steep budgetcuts, there is no more cost-effective way for students to reap the benefits of a comprehensive, integrated arts education thanthrough the collaboration between schools and our education and outreach programs.
