Paramount Theater Denver History

The Paramount Theater was first opened in 1930 as one of the finest movie palaces of the era, and over the years it's evolved into one of the very best places around Denver to see a big live show. The theater was jointly designed by Rapp and Rapp, a Chicago based architecture firm who designed the theater portion, and local Denver architect Temple Buell who designed the main entrance of the venue. The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980 after spending decades as the premiere movie theater in the Denver area. The city itself recognized Paramount Theater as a historic landmark in 1988 and it has enjoyed a renaissance in recent years as it has been bringing in top notch entertainment during its life after being a music palace.

It isn't just music, however, as this is a venue that has also had other events as well, particularly for prominent comedy shows. Big name comedians like Jim Jefferies, Bill Engvall, Tracy Morgan, and Bill Maher have performed at the Paramount when they come to Denver, and you never know who is going to pop up onto the calendar next. Additionally many of the top musicians and bands in the world have hit the stage at Paramount Theater, including Tori Amos, Yes, Gavin DeGraw, the Kingston Trio, and Steve Winwood – just to name a few. Put it all together and the Paramount Theater in Denver is one of the very best entertainment draws in the state.
