Classic Film Series

Don’t Dream It, See It.

Come celebrate 48 YEARS of the Paramount Summer Classic Film Series 🍿 🎥 We’ve got tried-and-true classics, NEW classics, special anniversaries, a PRIDE screening of PARIS IS BURNING that leads into a drag ball on the Paramount stage with the legendary House of Lepore the next day, plus a new partnership with our film friends at over at Hyperreal Film Club, who have added a 6-film mini-series that is expertly curated and super fun!

MORE, MORE, MORE: Our first lineup reveal covers May to June, so bookmark this page for two more announces from Film Programmer Stephen Jannise that will take you all the way to September (yes, Hitchcock Week is coming). We’re happy to share that films are back at the State Theatre next door as well, giving you even more chances to escape the Texas heat for buttery popcorn and can’t-miss movies.

Thank you to our passionate Film Fan Club members and our returning series partner, CapMetro, for making summers of film possible ❤️

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!
