This theater was outfitted with a 70 mm projection system for the premiere of the movie “Ed TV” several years ago. If memory serves, the system was paid for with generous donations from director Ron Howard and actor Matthew McConaughey. They play 70 mm prints there when they get the chance. This is a great theater.

Hello, guys. I attended your presentation at the League of Historic American Theatres conference. I’ve been running the Paramount in Austin for the last 16 years. We’ve got a pretty nifty website, if I do say so, at www.theparamount.org, if you’d like to link us. — pb
