The Historic Movie Theatres in Illinois book lists that it opened in 1931 and closed in 1970.The exterior photo from digital past features cars from either 1930’s or 1940’s,they definitely don’t look like vehicles from the 1920’s.

According to the THSA annual of the Deco theatres John Eberson there is a drawing in the Wilkes-Barre Historical Society Archives for a Paramount Theatre dated 1 May 1931.Eberson designed this building for Comerford.It is quite possible that this theatre is an altered version of his original design.

I have only been involved with Cinema Treasures in recent years but have much admiration for Jim Rankin’s knowledge of theatres and particularly his amazing writing skills.If only I could write half as good.
His passing is a great loss for all those connected with Cinema Treasures and the Theatre Historical Society of America.
