Groups to manage Paramount Theater together

Posted:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

VenuWorks and Orchestra Iowa have announced that they will join forces to manage the historic Paramount Theater.

VenuWorks, the company contracted by the city to manage the theater in 1999, will work together with Orchestra Iowa to manage, promote and operate the theater which was heavily damaged in the flood of 2008.

"The agreement will provide the best possible event experience for event planners, promoters, sponsors, performers and audience members by providing superior professional services in all facets of the Theatre's operation," Orchestra Iowa CEO Robert Massey said in a written statement. "VenuWorks and Orchestra Iowa will work together to see that the Paramount Theatre's use and visibility is maximized with the most financially efficient model possible."

Orchestra Iowa has been the primary tenant since 1980 and has led the charge to rebuild the theater.
