The Paramount Theatre was operated for most of it’s life as a movie theatre by Evergreen State Amusement Corp., on of the subsidiaries of Fox Theatre and later by National General Theatres.

Chuck, did you take all your photos down? I noticed on another theater too that I couldn’t access a photo you posted.

“The show is fine at 9th and Pine!”

This place is the real deal, the one by which others should be measured. What a rare treat to walk in those doors, through that lobby, up those stairs. To sit in a balcony with a thousand or more seats. To see a Buster Keaton double feature with hundreds of fans — everyone on this site should immediately see “Sherlock Jr.,” a very funny comedy about a movie projectionist — accompanied by a mighty Wurlitzer. All was right with the world on Monday night, and I may never be the same again.

Listed as a filming location for Nirvana Live! Tonight! Sold Out!! (1994).

The Paramount has the honor of having Cinerama installed in 1956, removed in 1958; and then the rival 3-projector CineMiracle installed twice, once 1959, then removed, then re-installed in 1962. Any photos available during those eras?

In the 50’s the Paramount was a Cinerama house for the city.

The Paramount opened on March 1, 1928. The architects were B. Marcus Priteca and the firm of Rapp & Rapp.

I am trying to contact the owners of the Paramount Theater to see if they might be interested in an original sketch of the theater done by the architect before the theater was built. It is a drawing of the inside of the building done in pencil and highlighted with what appears to be colored pencils. I obtained this sketch from a relative of the architect.
