Paramount Theatre

One of fewer than 25 remaining theatres in existence designed by John Eberson of Chicago, Austin's Majestic Theatre (the Paramount's original name) seated its first audience on October 11, 1915. Part Classical Revival (its original 1915 style), and part Baroque Revival (after its 1930s renovation), Austin's favorite theatre has audiences and performers agreeing that its style can bring the house down.
