Later in The San Juan Star, published an article that the Land Authority of Puerto Rico is the organization that wants to restore the Paramount. The ones that said that the Paramount should be demolish was the Institute of Puertorrican Culture(ICP) because the theater is past the restoring point and had no historical value. But the Land Authority will restore it. The goverment gave it a $4 million budget. They will demolish the back and make it new and the facade will be restore because it is in good share said the Land Authority. Shame on the ICP.

Bad news for lovers of The Paramount. The San Juan Star reported that plans to renovate the theater have been cancelled. The company that was planning the renovation has sold the property to the government’s Land Authority and they plan to demolish the building to create an office building. The government claims the theater is beyond repair and should be razed.

The Paramount will never be a cinema again since Caribbean Cinemas has 5 cinemas ( and 2 more planned for Fine Arts ) on this screen and parking for the area is not as convienent. The building had major roof damage in 2000 due to a storm and renovation for cinema use to Caribbean Cinema standards would have been too expensive.
