The Paramount Theatre was originally The Great Lakes Theatre. I remember watching it being demolished in the very early 1990’s to make way for the City Centre Condo’s. I may be wrong but at the time I had heard that they were going to keep a small part of the facade incorporated into the new building. However, it doesn’t seem likely. The Paramount stood towards the NW corner of W.CHippewa and Main St. At the time of it’s demolition, there was just an empty lot to the south of it…to the corner of Main and Chippewa. II believe that this is where Laube’s (Lobby’s) Old Spain once stood.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but the Center Theatre was originally Shea’s Hippodrome. Anyone know when it was demolished?
This theatre was closed and demolished in the early 90’s, as was the Seneca Mall itself.
