Paris theater gutted by fire
PARIS, AR – The recently renovated Main Street Cinema was destroyed by a blaze on Jan 2. A previous theater in the town succumbed to the same fate in 2005.
Fire officials said the cause of the blaze is under investigation and that no one was inside when the fire broke out.
“It gave the families some place to take their kids to see movies and have something to do on the weekends,” said area resident Kathy Caughman.
Orange flames glowed from inside the theater as several fire departments worked to prevent the fire from spreading.
