Sure, Barton Springs provides some nice relief from the oppressive summer sun, but get out of the water and it's still 100 degrees outside. Catch a double feature at the Paramount and for $5 you can escape the late day heat for over four hours. The movies are classics, the prints are usually of good quality, the concession stand is a bar, and, as a theatre, the Paramount beats the pants off of these modern jobbies.
