The Paramount Theatre is continuing with it's themed classics film series. Just in time for Spring Break, don't miss the all time favorite "Toy Story." Enjoy all your favorite classic movies in the historic surroundings and under the star lit ceiling of the Paramount Theatre located at 352 Cypress Street in downtown Abilene. Most all films are shown, typically on Friday, Saturday and some Sunday matinees.

The classic "Toy Story" will be shown on both Friday, March 12th and Saturday, March 13th at 7:30pm. "Toy Story" is about Woody (voiced by Tom Hanks), a good-hearted cowboy doll who belongs to a young boy named Andy (voiced by John Morris), sees his position as Andy’s favorite toy jeopardized when his parents buy him a Buzz Lightyear (voiced by comedian Tim Allen) action figure.

What's even worse, Buzz thinks he’s a real spaceman on a mission to return to his home planet. When Andy’s family moves to a new house, Woody and Buzz must escape the clutches of maladjusted neighbor Sid Phillips (voiced by Erik von Detten) and reunite with their boy. See the original movie trailer above.

Toy Story is the perfect film for both young and old alike and a perfect movie to take in during Spring Break weekend at the Paramount Theatre. Tickets are $7 general admission and $6 for seniors and military, get them in advance online at AbileneThundrTix.com due to limited capacity.

The Paramount Theatre had issued a statement back in August stating: We are following the health and safety guidelines issued from state and local officials, we are putting into place the following safeguards and limits to ensure that both patrons and staff are as protected as possible during this transitional period. The Theatre will reopen with new revised scheduling to ensure staff adequate time to clean and disinfect the building between events.
