The Paramount Theatre opened on 21st April 1932 with Lily Damita and Cary Grant starring in “This is the Night”. The seating capacity at opening was 1,433.

It closed on 20th February 1975.

Interesting website. My name is Michael J Sitz. I worked for Interstate Theatres and was the last manager of the Paramount Theatre in Amarillo TX. I also managed the State and Esquire Theatres.

I worked for JP Harrison at the Campus Theatre in Denton Texas before transferring to Amarillo, and he was the Interstate manager that ‘reopened’ the Paramount in the later 30
s, after it had been closed for a short time.

Thanks for the memories.
