Today, the Paramount is the home of the Oakland Symphony and the Oakland Ballet, and regularly hosts music of many genres as well as other community events. The Oakland Symphony renovated the theatre during the 1970s. It is currently owned by the City of Oakland and operated by the Paramount Theatre Association.
