Paramount Theatre Oakland History

The Paramount Theatre in Oakland, California was the biggest theater on the West Coast when it first opened its doors in 1931 and was initially used as a movie palace. Eventually it became the home of the Oakland Symphony Orchestra and underwent a major renovation in 1973 which removed the old popcorn machines and vending area and made the theater more appropriate for concerts. The venue was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1973, and was deemed a California Registered Historical Landmark in 1976 and a U.S. National Landmark the following year. These days the Paramount is used for a wide variety of events and StubHub is the place to go to get tickets for all of them.
