Description

Taking the kids to the Paramount Theatre for the Summer Classic Film Series screening of The Wizard of Oz is a dream come true, until you realize flying a hot air balloon downtown is easier than finding a parking spot!

MAKE IT A TRANSIT ADVENTURE | Capital Metro and the Paramount Theatre invite you for an afternoon of family fun with free admission to the movie AND a free Transit Day Pass -- so you can spend more time making childhood memories and less time circling for parking.
