Paramount Arts Centre


After 86 years of faithful and loyal service, supporting more than 8 million patrons, the Paramount Theatre seats will be retired! New seats will be installed during the summer of 2018 and will have the highest-grade padding and support, will be larger, and more comfortable. Total cost for replacement and installation of the new seats will be $1 million.

The Dunham Fund has issued a dollar-for-dollar match for all donations to the seat campaign. Gifts of $400 will cover the cost of replacing one seat and will be recognized on a highly visible plaque in the Paramount’s Grand Gallery. Donations can be made in honor of a loved one, in memory of someone, or in a family name.

All $400 contributions will be matched by the Dunham Fund, and therefore will pay for the cost of TWO seats.
