About Paramount Center for the Arts

The mission of the Paramount Theatre & Visual Arts Center is to provide opportunities for artistic production, creative exploration, arts education and the enjoyment of arts and entertainment.

The facility is managed to ensure use by a diverse set of patrons, enhance artistic opportunity, provide a creative environment for community involvement in the arts, and generate a positive economic impact on Downtown St. Cloud. Features include a large stage for performance art, exhibit space for art exhibitions, the Visual Arts Studios for classes and creative exploration, and the Paramount Gift Gallery featuring artwork from local artists for sale.

The Theatre
The renovated historic Theatre serves as a stage for rent by numerous community groups to perform as well as a location to attend professional performances by touring musicians and theatrical groups.

Visual Arts Studios
The Paramount Visual Arts Studios offer a creative environment for the community to interface with the visual arts. As a community resource, we nurture a love of the arts, welcoming the beginning student through experienced artist in our newly renovated studio for hands-on arts education. We have a great selection of art classes and newly updated studios available to community members at all experience levels.

Paramount Gift Gallery
The Paramount Gallery and Gifts, located next door to the theatre, provides the opportunity for local artists to sell their work.
