ACCA is the parent organization, which also includes a 501(c)3 arm under the name of Paramount Arts Centre, Inc. It operates three performance venues: the 6,000-person RiverEdge Park, the 1,843-seat landmark Paramount Theatre, and the 165-seat, newly renovated Copley Theatre. In July of 2024 it will also open Stolp Island Theatre: a 9,000 square foot development that includes an intimate 98-seat 4,600-square-foot theater. ACCA produces and presents over 500 performances each year, including star-studded touring productions, a selfproduced Broadway Series of musicals and the self-produced Bold Series for an annual audience of 350,000 patrons from over 250 communities. ACCA proudly operates the Paramount School of the Arts in the new John C. Dunham Aurora Arts Center, right next door to Paramount Theatre in downtown Aurora. Paramount Theatre also hosts free community events, $1 Classic Movie Mondays and its opulent interiors provide a spectacular backdrop for private functions such as wedding receptions or corporate galas. Across the street from Paramount Theatre are the gorgeous Meyer Ballrooms, which play host to multiple wedding receptions and rental events throughout the year.

Paramount Theatre/Aurora Civic Center Authority is committed to being a defining catalyst for
personal and community transformation by:
• making the performing arts accessible for every age and socioeconomic background,
• introducing the magic of live theater across generations to encourage expansive imaginations
and broad views of people and the world,
• and contributing to the future stability and growth of Aurora’s downtown.

The highest purpose of any theater is to inspire its community toward a more perfect humanity. Such
humanity can exist only when every member of the community is included and valued, empowered
and heard. To express this truth, ACCA commits its leaders, volunteers, artists and staff to the active,
continual and accountable pursuit of the following principles: equity, inclusion and diversity.
