The Paramount theater's vertical sign and marquee are brightly lit on the art deco building. On the building to the right of the theater, color lights behind arched windows form an image of the American flag. In 2010, the Paramount Theatre re-opened for the first time in 34 years. Built in 1932, the Paramount Theatre was a one of Boston's great movie palaces. It closed in 1976, and was designated a Boston landmark in 1984. Emerson acquired the Paramount in 2005 and hired Elkus Manfredi Architects to restore and re-imagine this historic art deco gem. It reopened in 2010 as the Paramount Center, which contains the main theatre as well as a black box theater, film screening room, rehearsal studios, practice rooms, sound stage, scene shop, classrooms and offices for faculty and staff. ArtsEmerson programed film, theatre and film events at the Paramount, contributing to the city’s rich cultural offerings.

Corner view of the building shows four oblong towers atop a common first floor. The top of each tower has decorative architectural ornamentation. Purple and yellow Emerson College banners hang from the middle floors. The roof of the Boylston Street MBTA station entrance is visible in the lower right corner. In 1994, Emerson purchased and renovated the Little Building, a 12-story commercial structure at 80 Boylston Street, next to the Emerson Majestic Theatre and across the street from 180 Tremont Street. It serves as a residence hall with other college facilities and commercial space at street level. At the time of this photo, there was a 150-seat Cabaret theater in the lower level. The Little Building is an example of modern gothic skyscraper architecture. It was built in 1917 as office building with shopping arcade and named for Boston businessman and philanthropist, John Mason Little. It was designed by prominent Boston architect Clarence Blackall, who designed as many as fifteen theaters in the Boston area, including the Colonial and Wilbur theaters. Known as the “City Under One Roof,” the Little Building was the “first apartment house in any city along the Atlantic seaboard of the United States,” according to architectural historian Walter Muir Whitehill. The Little Building underwent its second major renovation by Emerson College between 2017 and 2019.

Purple and gold Emerson banners hang from the 2nd floor. Buildings across the alley can be seen reflected in the glass windows. In 2003, the Tufte Production and Performance (PPC) building became the first purpose built structure created and built for Emerson College. It is named in honor of Emerson College trustee Marillyn Zacharis' parents, Norman I. and Mary E. Tufte. The state-of-the-art building was designed by Elkus/Manfredi architects and constructed by the Lee Kennedy Co., at the same time Emerson undertook the restoration of the historic Cutler Majestic Theatre next door.

Six years later, it was renamed the Ansin Building in honor of Sydney and Sophie Ansin, the parents of Edmund Ansin, who donated $1 million to the college. The Ansin building is home to Emerson's Visual & Media Arts (VMA) labs and facilities, offices for VMA and Writing, Literature & Publishing (WLP) departments, and WERS, WECB, and ETIN.
