Event Location

The Paramount Theatre
1621 Glenarm Place, Denver, CO 80202

The Paramount Theatre is the place to be in downtown Denver. Frequented by bands such as Guster, Leon Bridges and home to cultural events and experiences like the Moscow Ballet Nutcracker and evenings with Ira Glass and Jay Leno, this is a historic cultural hub for a city on the move. Built by Temple Buell for Publix Theatres in 1930, the Paramount Theatre has remained the only local theatre of its time to maintain its original dignity and glamour.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Q Ideas?

Q was birthed out of Gabe Lyons’ vision to see Christians recover a vision for their historic responsibility to renew and restore cultures. In a culture where Christians are known more by what they are against than what they are for, Q educates people to stay curious, think well and advance good. Inspired by Chuck Colson’s statement, “Christians are called to redeem entire cultures, not just individuals,” Gabe set out to reintroduce Christians to what had seemed missing in recent decades from an American expression of Christian faithfulness; valuing both personal and cultural renewal, not one over the other. Re-educating Christians to this orthodox and unifying concept has become central to the vision of Q. For more information visit QIdeas.org/about
