Did you know that the 106-year-old Paramount Theatre in Austin is one of the principal venues for South by Southwest (SXSW)?

The popular film, music, and interactive festival has been running for 35 years with the 2022 festival ending this weekend.

The Paramount Theatre originally opened in 1915 as the Majestic Theatre, designed by noted architect John Eberson who would later go on to become strongly associated with Atmospheric Theatre designs.

The name changed to the Paramount in 1930 when Paramount-Publix purchased the theatre.

By the late 1960s the theatre was a faded shadow of its former self, however in the mid 1970s a restoration campaign was mounted and the theatre fully restored 1979-80.

"I don't think I've ever made a movie that I didn't imagine, when working on it, 'What will it be like at the Paramount the first night it screens?'... It influences my dreaming life. There is something sitting in that movie theater. That's one of my favorite movie theaters in the world, because you can really feel an audience and their relationship to the work in a way that is powerful. I've had some of my favorite experiences there." -Ethan Hawke

Honored to have Ethan join us yesterday for the premiere of the first chapter of his CNN+ documentary THE LAST MOVIE STARS celebrating Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward's talent and love — a perfect way to kick of Day 4 of SXSW at the Paramount.
