“The Paramount staff was above and beyond accommodating from the signing of the contract to the day of event details, they even sat in on committee meetings to make sure they didn’t miss a beat…I cannot say enough good things about their professionalism and flexibility in making our event a success…

THEY WERE TRULY A PLEASURE TO WORK WITH AND I LOOK FORWARD TO WORKING WITH THEM AGAIN.

          –Kim, 2017 Mayoral Election

“We love working with the Paramount! They understand and help with all questions we have. They are able to ask questions about our event that we haven’t even thought of so that we have no hiccups the day of the event. Everything was set up beautifully and when we had an issue come up, they easily helped us out.

 DEFINITELY WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND THE CALL OF DUTY!

         –Anonymous 

“We held a corporate event at the Paramount Theatre in August. It was spacious, pretty, and large enough for 350 people to move around. We were able to have a nice catered lunch, team building events, and corporate presentations with ease.

THIS IS A GREAT PLACE TO BOOK FOR AN EVENT!

         –Regina, Wrigley

CREW WAS GREAT TO WORK WITH. THE SPACE WAS AMAZING TO BE CREATIVE WITH OUR IDEAS.

         –Connie, Ozinga

“There is not enough space on the page for me to adequately express how grateful I am to have booked my event with the Meyer Ballroom and The Paramount Theatre. The staff exceeded all expectations in making sure all details were attended to so that I could enjoy the evening along with our guests; a first for anyone who has ever chaired a non-profit gala! They were accommodating at every turn and seamlessly executed all facets of the event efficiently and pleasantly.

WHETHER YOU ARE BOOKING AN EVENT FOR 10 OR 100, YOU CAN REST EASY KNOWING YOU WILL HAVE TRUE PARTNERS WORKING WITH YOU TO ENSURE YOUR EVENT’S SUCCESS.

           –Karyn M. Mccarthy, Executive Director, PowerForward Dupage

“They understand and help with all questions we have. They are able to ask questions about our event that we haven’t even thought of so that we have no hiccups the day of the event. Everything was set up beautifully and when we had an issue come up, they easily helped us out. Definitely went above and beyond the call of duty!

WE LOVE WORKING WITH THE PARAMOUNT!

           –Jenny, AARP

“We held 2 days worth of catered events at the Meyer Ballroom. Kelsey made everything seamless. She was patient, kind and had everything set. I felt confident and comfortable from the beginning, she had this. I would highly recommend having anything here. 

THE VIEW IS BEAUTIFUL, STAFF IS INCREDIBLE AND THE LOCATION IS IDEAL.
