The Paramount Summer Classic Film Series – A “Classic” Experience

Published on June 17, 2021

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 returned Thursday, May 27.

New films are being announced each month. Check back for “July Films” schedule on Tuesday, June 22.

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.
