Paramount Theatre Reopening

The Paramount Theatre in downtown Cedar Rapids is about to reopen after a $35 million renovation for repair damage caused by the 8-10 feet of floodwater that covered the auditorium floor and Hall of Mirrors. In addition to restoring the building to its former grandeur, improvements were made to the sound system along with a bigger orchestra pit, deeper stage and a backstage that now extends into the alley.
