Multi-venue operator BSE Global, which oversees the Barclays Center (cap. 19,000) in Brooklyn plans to transform the 3,000-capacity LIU Brooklyn Paramount Theatre into a state-of-the-art music venue.

The 90-year-old venue has a rich history, having hosted concerts by Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Ella Fitzgerald, Miles Davis, Buddy Holly and Chuck Berry in its heyday.

BSE, which also operates Long Island’s NYCB Live (15,000) and New York City’s Webster Hall (1,500), will move the theatre’s entrance back to its original corner location on Flatbush and Dekalb Avenues, reestablished a loge level balcony and box office, and update sound and lighting systems.

“The addition of Paramount to BSE Global’s venue pipeline enables us to connect with artistes at all points in their career and hopefully help them rise through to arena level at the Barclays Center,” says BSE Global CEO Brett Yormark.

The renovation is expected to be completed by the middle of next year.
