A painting of the vanished Paramount Theater can be seen here.

The Paramount was a beautiful theater. It closed in 1963. I recall seeing equipment, etc on the sidewalk outside during the summer of 63 as they were gutting it. The excuse at the time was that it cost too much to AC the place. It’s a parking lot now. I don’t think anything was ever built there after it was razed. El Cid was the last movie I saw there circa Nov. 1962.

The April 2nd, 1930 issue of Variety reported that Paramount would build a new theatre in Middletown, Ohio, for $750,000, with Rapp & Rapp as architects. It was probably similar in design to a new Paramount theatre by Rapp & Rapp and also costing $750,000 in Hamilton, Ohio, which was announced in the same issue of Variety. Both theatres would be owned by a Paramount subsidiary called the Midham Company, headquartered in Cincinnati.
