This tour will be $10 per person plus a $3.00 service fee ($13 total per person), limit ONLY 35 guests.
The Paramount Theatre is one of the finest showplaces of the nation and the leading example of Moderne Art-Deco design. The 3,000 seat movie palace opened in 1931,and remains a significant National Historic Landmark and an architectural marvel.
Public tours are given twice monthly, but we have arranged for a later private tour for just MBCA members only at 1pm that will last about 1 and 1/2 hours. Matias Bombal, our Sacramento Section vice president is a former employee of this theatre, and with his associates you will have a tour of this historic structure that the regular tours will never equal.

We will meet March 15 at the theatre's carriage entrance at 12:45p on 21st street near Broadway for the tour.
