The architecture of the building of the theatre is known for reflecting the renaissance and Italian style of building. The building was designed by a renowned architectural firm which is famous for its designs of several other theaters as well, Rapp and Rapp. The concert hall originally opened its doors for audience as the Portland Publix Theatre in March 1928 and back then it was considered to be the largest theatre within the vicinity of Portland. After when the owners of the theatre signed a deal with Paramount pictures to run their films locally, the theatre was then renamed to the Paramount Theatre.

Initially the sole purpose of the theatre was to showcase feature films, but after 1972 the building also took the form of a concert hall as it started hosting the concerts of some of the biggest names in the industry. This step was taken after the owner of the theatre thought that it is uneconomical to operate the building as a movie theatre only during the days when television was taking over. So after showing the last movie, "Dr. Phibes Rises Again", a partnership named Paramount Northwest was formed, which gave the theatre on lease for three years.

During that time, live concerts were promoted at the venue and so it took the form of a present day concert. Soon after, Arlene Schnitzer Concert hall started hosting the renowned musicians such as the Beastie Boys, U2, Queen, Bob Dylan, The Police, Robert Plant, Santana, Madonna, Pat Benatar, Jonas Brothers and a lot more. The Arlene Schnitzer Concert hall continues its legacy of hosting some of the finest names in the music industry even today. This year, Arlene Schnitzer Concert hall has an exciting line up of events for you, and if you've chosen to attend one of the upcoming events at the hall, then our cheap Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall Tickets can surely provide you with an affordable solution for the tickets.
