Best of Westchester - Editors' Picks
Best Rock, Pop, and Hip Hop Venue; 2005. When Paramount Pictures built this all talking movie palace in 1930, it never would have guessed that, one day, the likes of Chuck Berry, the Marshall Tucker Band, and Todd Rundgren would rocking from its stage 75 years later. When the biggest names in rock and pop come to play the county, they come here. And it's one of the only venues in the county to showcase hip-hop artists, as seen in June's four day long Hip Hop Symposium, featuring performances by MCs, dance showcases, films on hip hop culture, and a related visual art exhibit. Now that the seats, stage, concession stand, and signs have all been refurbished to their former glory, there's no better place to catch those rock, pop, and hip hop acts.
