Paramount Mainstage

Paramount Mainstage

Originally a 1930s cinema palace, the Paramount Mainstage had closed in 1976 and fallen into disrepair by the time Emerson College purchased the building in 2005. Enchantingly restored in lively Art Deco style, the newly reopened Paramount Center’s largest facility is a 596-seat theatre with a brand new stage and orchestra pit. As the newest attraction in Boston’s Theatre District, the Paramount Mainstage evokes the thrill of American cinema’s Golden Age while hosting world-class performing artists.

The Paramount Mainstage seats 590, and is used for ArtsEmerson: The World on Stage productions.
