Classic Film Series

Come celebrate 48 YEARS of the Paramount Summer Classic Film Series 🍿 🎥
We’ve got tried-and-true classics, NEW classics, milestone anniversaries, plus a new partnership with our friends over at Hyperreal Film Club, who have added their own 6-film mini-series to our summer lineup.

MORE, MORE, MORE: Bookmark this page for one more announce from Film Programmer Stephen Jannise that will take you all the way to September – Hitchcock Week is coming, just closer to the Master of Suspense’s 123rd birthday on August 13th. 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 ❤️

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!
