Paramount Pictures Building
80 Commonwealth St, Surry Hills NSW 2010, Australia
Paramount Pictures BuildingDownstairs in the 1940s Paramount Pictures building in Surry Hills, Golden Age Cinema puts on cult and contemporary films as well as live music in a former military screening room. Before or after the show, sip on cocktails inspired by that day's movie—think whiskey for the music documentary Muscle Shoals, which is set on the Tennessee River. On street level, the Paramount Coffee Project is a big, sun-drenched space that specializes in artisan coffee, Asian-fusion food, and fun milkshake flavors like the Golden Gaytime. Draped in French linen, bohemian wall hangings, and wool blankets fashioned out of offcuts from Tasmania’s oldest mill, the boutique Paramount House Hotel opened in 2018, as did the wine bar, Poly, that occupies the ground floor.
