PALM BEACH, FL — This grand old theatre is fighting for its life. Due to safety regulations, the town is planning on demolishing it. But there is a group trying to safe it by having it declared a Palm Beach Landmark. Here is what they are planning:

PRESERVE THE HISTORIC PARAMOUNT
PUBLIC MEETING
Monday, August 2, 5:00 pm
Paramount Church Fellowship Hall
139 North County Road, Palm Beach

We wish to thank the individuals, civic and charitable organizations, foundations and tenants in the Paramount who have offered to help as a result of the recent articles in the Palm Beach Daily News and The Palm Beach Post.

We are committed to preserving the Paramount and complying with the recent Landmarks Preservation Commission mandate requiring restoration of the deck railings, which to date has been estimated to cost $389,000.

We invite any and all to come to this meeting to discuss options to raise funds for the preservation needs of the Paramount we welcome all ideas from our Palm Beach neighbors and friends. Light food will be served.

A “Preserve The Historic Paramount Fund” has been established to help to preserve the historic property. Donations are fully tax deductible and can be sent to “Preserve The Historic Paramount Fund” at 139 North County Road, Suite 31, Palm Beach, Fl 33480.

And a new website has just been constructed
For additional information please call 835-0913 or .

Shame on filthy wealthy Palm Beach.

Betweeen the Paramount Palm Beach, the Gusman/Olympia downtown Miami, and the Lincoln Miami Beach, three more cases of South Florida being quick to dispose of heritage.

Well said, possible to be very wealthy and have no sense of taste, or any regard for the very limited historical heritage of a district.
Whatever excuse might apply in cash strapped rustbelt towns does not apply here. Shame indeed.
