The Paramount and Stateside Theatres are managed and operated by the Austin Theatre Alliance. A 501(c)3 nonprofit, our organization strives to bring the widest variety of entertainment to as many people as possible in these treasured historic theatres. We work with national and local promoters, reputable companies, and many nonprofit organizations to present over 250 events at both theatres throughout the year.

The Paramount and Stateside Theatres feature traditional theatre seating, full bars, attractive lobbies for receptions, and new state-of-the-art sound and digital projection, all while retaining historic beauty and charm. Both theatres are available for hosting a variety of events, including:

  • Touring Shows
  • Concerts
  • Film Screenings & Premieres
  • Benefits & Fundraisers
  • Corporate Meetings & Events
  • Special Events

In keeping with our core mission, the theatres are not available for weddings, nor are the theatres’ marquees available for personal messages. Please note, if you plan to sell tickets to your event, your ticketing must run through our in-house ticketing platform.
