Newson March 23rd, 2011Comments Off

The Paramount Theatre has announced its “Big Flicks at the Paramount” Spring Film Series, “Back to the Classics,” running March 26 through June 11.  Bruce Bouchard, Executive Director, commented, “It has been 16 months since we opened our ‘Big Flicks at the Paramount’ Big Screen Film initiative with ‘Gone With The Wind,’ in November of 2009. After trying a number of different things (a 1965-1975 Series), recent holiday films (Jim Carrey’s ‘Grinch’ ‘Polar Express’) and recent general release films, (‘Twilight’ ‘Mama Mia’ ‘Chicago’) it was time to come full circle with a look, once again, at some of the great films of all time.”  He continues, “We wanted to take a walk through the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s as well as examining, along that path, 3 of the greatest Epics ever made, ‘THE TEN COMMANDMENTS’ (Easter Weekend), ‘GIANT’ and ‘SPARTACUS;’ intended by their creators to be experienced  on the BIG SCREEN.” 

 Six out of eight dates will play on Saturdays throughout the spring with matinee and evening screenings and two of the dates play one screening only on Fridays. This series has something for everyone, great opportunities for entertainment for the entire family and stunning performances.

All tickets are $6 for adults and $4 for those 12 and under.
