Paramount Center for the Arts
1008 Brown St. Peekskill, NY 914-739-2333
Presenting top musical, comedic and cinematic experiences, the Paramount finds a way to maintain intimacy in a 960-seat theater. The look is Art Deco, with bloodred curtains and seat covers and white busts overlooking the audience. Overall, it's a great place to catch a good old-fashioned show.
Comedy: Big-name comedy talent, including Howie Mandel and Lewis Black, perform here on a monthly basis. Even if you're in the last row, the theater is intimate enough to make you feel that you're in on the joke.
