Bristol, TN 37620 United States

The Paramount Center for the Arts consists of a 732 seat auditorium with full sized stage, audio equipment, curtains, and a backstage area. Today, Paramount Bristol hosts a full calendar of concerts, theater and performing arts performances, film screenings and special events.

The Paramount Theatre opened its doors on February 2oth, 1931 and functioned as a movie house and vaudeville stage for nearly fifty years. On Friday, April 26th 1991, the fully restored Paramount was opened to much fanfare and a signature performance by Tennessee Ernie Ford who sang accompanied by the Charles Goodwin Orchestra. Mr. Ford had also appeared at a highly acclaimed and sold out show in 1949 at The Paramount Center. Today, The Paramount Center for the Arts looks much as it did when it first opened; for example, the marquee is a replica of the original. The chandeliers in the lobby are the original fixtures, except for Tiffany or Lalique glass as the base.
