Paramount Center Mainstage
Originally a 1930s cinema palace, the Paramount Mainstage had closed in 1976 and fallen into disrepair by the time Emerson College purchased the building in 2005. Enchantingly restored in lively Art Deco style, the newly reopened Paramount Center’s largest facility is a 596-seat theatre with a brand new stage and orchestra pit. As the newest attraction in Boston’s Theatre District, the Paramount Mainstage evokes the thrill of American cinema’s Golden Age while hosting world-class performing artists.
Jackie Liebergott Black Box (“The Jackie”)
The intimate, 150-seat Jackie Theatre (named for former Emerson College President Jacqueline Liebergott) provides the Paramount Center’s performers with a more flexible space. Exposed brick, tall windows and an open room invite artists to envision their own worlds and create unique experiences for audiences.
Bright Family Screening Room
The state-of-the-art screening room is named for the family of Emerson alumnus and Trustee Kevin Bright, producer of the hit series "Friends" and son of vaudeville performer and manager Jackie Bright. A venue for both film and live performance, the Bright Family Screening Room features 16 millimeter, 35 millimeter and digital projection equipment with seating for 170 people.
