Paramount Theatre Media Center

Welcome to the Paramount Theatre Media Center. Here, you will find media policies and information on how to request media credentials at the Paramount Theatre. Please note that media policies may vary from event to event. In most cases, media requests are approved within 48 hours of the event.

The Paramount Theatre encourages all media to check in with the contact that processed their media credential request at least 24 - 48 hours prior to the show to ensure that tickets and/or passes will be ready for pick-up at show.


All individuals with the intent to publish photographs, information or video from Paramount Theatre events through print or broadcast mediums are required to have the proper credentials. The Paramount Theatre policies change based on event and artist guidelines. Please contact your venue contact for more information.

For a majority of events, only major daily print publications, primary radio stations, and local news will be credentialed. For media information and requests, please submit via the contact link below. Submitting a request does not guarantee approval. 

Reviewer Tickets

Reviewer tickets are available to major daily print publications only. Website and blog requests must be sent to the artist label contact. If approved, review tickets will be available for pick-up approximately 3 hours prior to the event at the Paramount Theatre Box Office. Photo I.D. is required.
