The opening of the Paramount Theatre in the Eastgate Shopping Center took place on November 19, 1964. The new ABC-Paramount showplace began as a single screen theatre with 858 seats in its gold-draped, curtain wall auditorium. Like most ABC theatres of the period, it was designed by architect Henry George Greene, who attended the opening. The widescreen, large format cinematography, 70mm Todd-AO, 6-track stereophonic sound, music filled soundtrack, presentation of “The Sound of Music” was shown as a reserved seat ‘roadshow’ engagement at this theatre. It started on April 7, 1965 and played for 79 weeks! That’s over a year and a half.
The theatre was later twinned and closed in 1990. No trace remains except a lone photograph.
