Classic Film Series

Classic Films. Classic Experience.

Flashing marquee lights. Buttery popcorn. Colossal screen. It’s that movie palace atmosphere, an air-conditioned oasis. THIS is how movies were meant to be seen. The 46th Annual Paramount Summer Classic Film Series presented by CapMetro is back.

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, 8th/Lavaca, 8th/Guadalupe, 7th/Colorado or take MetroRail to the Downtown Station.

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