Vad du kommer att göra

We will start the last remaining piece of artwork from the original collection, and the inspiration behind the grand lobby.
Then we will go to the mezzanine lounges. Specialty wall finishes and custom furniture really sets this theatre apart from others. Each room has a story.

I will tell you about the process of restoring the theatre to its original luster. We will explore public and private rooms. Next, we will see behind the scenes to understand better what makes a 3,000 seat theatre work smoothly.

I will tell you about the carbon projectors, the music library, and how the original marquee is all in working order.

Optional rooms to see are the working boiler room, the generator room, and the wind engineering room.

Finally, we will end at the gift shop table where guests will have a chance for a souvenir to remember the experience, and support the theatre- they offer tee shirts, cd of the organ, the book of pictures and history or a button of the spin and win game.

After, there is plenty of nice cafes and restaurants nearby. Why not top off the afternoon with a gondola ride or a walk around the Lake Marrit just afew blocks away.

I’m the classic movie night game show host & tour guide since 2009.
Join me for a 1 1/2 hour tour to learn about history, decoration, art and inspiration behind this grand movie palace, a historical landmark theatre.

Explore the black lacquer lounge & peer through the Oculus to see the kingdom from the treetops. Enjoy the patented silver fin ceiling, the story behind our enormous 110-ton steel girder holding up the balcony, who thought of the lobby could be a jungle and much more.

Hear organ music (recorded live) and see how the lights create atmosphere. We’ll go onstage, backstage, under the stage, visit the green room, & stars dressing rooms, the powder room and secret smoking room.

Var ni kommer att vara

A rare glimpse into the past!
We will spend 2 hours together exploring the theatre. I have enough information to keep you entertained! We will go through all the public rooms of the theatre then go backstage and under to see what goes on behind the scenes.
Why not complete your afternoon with a gondola ride or walk around the lake.
For food, we like DOSA, Luca’s or Farley’s. All just a block away.

This was a fantastic experience! Highly recommend this. We had two guides and they both were great storytellers, giving us a brief history about the location and its surroundings, the theatre's construction itself, the details about the theatre, and answered all our questions! The theatre is like a palace from inside and I absolutely loved this experience. Highly recommend! Parking was also convenient (attached parking lot to the theatre).

Fantastic tour for anyone wanting to learn more about the historical significance of this landmark. The tour in its entirety lasted for a couple of hours and took us through different parts of the theatre while providing us great insights into the rich history of this place.

The tour was a lovely experience. It is worthwhile to note that this is not an exclusive experience to Airbnb - the tours are open to the public at the Paramount every second and fourth Saturday of the month for $5 in cash at the door

Who knew this hidden gem existed in Oakland?? From the very start of the tour we were fascinated by the architecture, the reason the building was built and when, and the list can go on! We got a special tour inside the projector room.... what historical non-profit tour guide shows you the actual behind the scenes AND has actually done some of the behind the scenes work and shares her stories!!?? Just this tour guide!
