blacykaty commented about Paramount Theatre on Jun 22, 2009 at 11:30 am

I have many fond memories of the Paramount and a child growing up in Baton Rouge. The most vivid is when my father and I were at Gone With the Wind in the mid ‘70’s. The movie was delayed in starting, no one could understand why. Finally, 3 rather large gentlemen in suits came into the theater and checked everyone out. A few moments later, Gov. Edwin Edwards walked in and sat 2 rows in front of us.

The Paramount was such a beautiful theater. It broke my heart to see it torn down. I never really understood why.
