MARSHALL, TX — The historic Paramount Theatre has been put up for auction on ebay with a minimum opening bid of $170,000. Economic downturns have forced the present owner to sell it.

The theatre was converted to a recording studio sometime after closing. According to the owner some TLC is needed to bring the theatre up to code and back to its former glory.

Back in the 1930 on the screen of the famous Paramount theater, you too could see the flick Treasure Island for only ten cents.

Now, you buy the Paramount Theater on Ebay for a cool bid of $170,000.

“I’ve been a member on Ebay for ten years. I don’t know if that’s a good thing or not, but I’ve seen a lot of things for sale on there and I thought well…why not.”

Can’t quite afford it… but I hope whoever buys preserves the integrity of the building.
