Mobile Entry

To minimize contact between guests and staff; and to expedite the entry process, the Paramount Theatre has switched to mobile entry for all it's events. Mobile Entry is the easiest and safest way to access tickets - with mobile entry your smartphone is your ticket.

For mobile entry tickets, you will only be able to access your tickets on your smartphone.  They will not be available to print from your online account, nor can they be emailed to you. For added security, the scannable barcode or QR code will not appear on the mobile ticket until the day of the event. A screen shot of a mobile ticket will not scan for entry.

For additional information and instructions on how to view your tickets, please visit the Mobile Entry page on Ticketmaster.
