A Note from Paramount’s Executive Director Miles Marek and what he has learned since taking the helm:
The Paramount is a living piece of Bristol history that carries the memories of the people who grew up here. There’s a sense of hometown pride when you see the marquee lit up at night. Many reminisce about childhood days spent at Saturday morning cartoons. Or movie tickets paid for with bottle caps. We’re proud to carry on the tradition. We are transforming the Paramount into a 21st Century showpalace.
Arts and Entertainment are key to the future of downtown Bristol. Over the past three years, The Paramount has been a catalyst in the growth of the downtown cultural scene. We are source of community pride. The Paramount drives significant revenue to downtown Bristol. It is a performance home for local arts organizations.
A vibrant downtown arts scene creates an inviting environment for tourism. Exciting possibilities are ahead as we present bigger and better shows. This will amplify the impact we are already having on Bristol and the region.
Top artists love performing here. Big name artists have such a great time here, at the end of the night they always ask me, “When can we come back?” They talk about the caliber of our stage crew. They talk about the warmth of our audience. The musical heritage of Bristol is reasons why they love to play at The Paramount. Our reputation for excellence has raised our profile as a top destination for touring artists.
This is an exciting time to be in Bristol and it is a privilege to lead The Paramount in the latest phase of its growth. We have an amazing lineup of artists coming to The Paramount this fall, so now is a great time to get on board as a member. Your tax-deductible contribution gets you access to the best seats at the best prices. This gives a positive impact on the cultural life of Bristol and the region.
