Paramount Theatre celebrates 100 years with eclectic 2015 lineup

Austin's iconic Paramount Theatre will celebrate its 100th anniversary with a rather eclectic 2015 lineup. On Monday, the Paramount announced programming for the spring and summer, which runs the gamut from legendary music performers to one of the world's most influential minds. 

The 2015 season begins with an inspirational conversation with Temple Grandin on February 7. Animal expert Duncan Strauss will join her on the Paramount stage, giving audience members a unique look inside Grandin's brilliant mind. Later that month KUTX presents guitar master Roger McGuinn on February 20, followed by Dr. John and February 21.

The spring/summer season closes with the Paramount presenting Don Rickles and Regis Philbin at Bass Concert Hall.
